Like how this book gets straight into the action! An easy read with lots happening! Marked it down a star as there are a couple of crude parts that I didn't think needed to be included.

The book Henderson's Boys Grey Wolves (written by Robert Muchamore) is a book that goes straight into action in World War 2 France after training back in England for several months. I believe this book as more action than the first 3 and is a very good read.
The group of 6 children and Henderson have to sneak back into France and help disrupt the German U-Boats from destroying the conveys of ships giving vital supplies to England
I like how they further developed Mark’s background and personality

This book get back into the action straight away, and talks of a mission are in the mist. They finally are back in Nazi occupied France and this time they are trained. This book keeps up with the action of the first two books had which the previous book lacked.

I still liked Marc as a character he is become more developed. I also felt that Henderson, who I had previous felt that he was dangerous and had no feelings for the people he hurt, became more human like and started to think about what he

Grey Wolves konečně dočteno. Vzhledem k počátku semestru a tomu, kolik nám toho naložili hned jak jsme se ve škole po zkouškovém ukázali mi bohužel na čtení zbývalo velice málo času. Vždy jsme přišla domů, učila se na další den a pak jsem byla ráda, když jsem dokázala přečíst 5-6 stránek, než jsem totálně vytuhla. Z toho důvodu se čtení tohoto dílu HB dost protáhlo a proto se mi dost těžko hodnotí. Tím, že jsem četla po malých kouskách, málem jsem už v průběhu čtení zapomínala, co se vlastně na ...more

After spending several months in Britain training to be spies, Henderson’s espionage group is ready to embark on a multi-month mission in occupied France. Their mission: to seek out ways of disrupting the German U-Boat (submarine) programme, a venture that is slowly pushing Britain back from their command of the oceans. It’s dangerous but necassary, particularly now as the German forces renew their clash with Britain. The sabotage has to be discreet, othe

I am still not too sure why I like Robert Muchamore's books, or rather why I keep on reading them. For a series written for young adults he is a little too graphic and coarse and I feel that even as an adult. Personally I'm not too sure who his audience is supposed to be. But nonetheless, I enjoy historical novels, so I continue reading.

Muchamore closes the gap between the Cherub series and Henderson's Boys in this book (finally). It was hinted at in the third book, but well and truly sealed in

This book had back to back scenes of fighting, thrill, and adventure. I highly recommend this book to anyone who really likes non-stop action and a bit of history thrown in. In this book Paul, Rosie, Marc, Luc, and several other teens are sent to infiltrate the Nazis, and find out how to beat them. If you've read CHERUB, then you will love this!

I thought this text was really good. The book is about a group young field agents and a former British Navy worker. As this is the fourth book in a series set World War II, I thought it would be very hard to make this story interesting, but it was very suspenseful. In the book they travel to the south of France to destroy a German U-boat factory and sabotage other projects the Germans are doing. I found the book very hard to put down and I also learn

I was quite dubious about this as I had read some negative reviews beforehand (which I am never going to do again). But I enjoyed this, I felt as though everything started coming together and really feels like it gels now.
My main criticism of the series as a whole is that I can't pinpoint who Muchamore's audience is. In the library these are classed as young teenage, but it says on the back not suitable for younger readers and the novels themselves are very descriptive and gory and there is a lo

This book was amazing. It was action packed from beginning to end. I can't wait to see where this series goes.
Alex Hb
Such an amazing book , I could not put it down once I had started reading ! Would 100% recommend this book if you like Spy books and books about WW1 & WW2 , or if you have read Robert Muchamore's original Cherub series.

Robert Muchamore is a great author. I know I'm probably too old to still be reading his books but I can't help myself. CHERUB was good. Henderson's Boys is also good.

So...yeah. Grey Wolves was awesome - the first "proper"/planned mission they all get to go on. There are characters who are annoying and there are characters who are awesome. The only thing I found weird was PT & Rosie...that relationship seems kinda off considering it's 1941. But hey. Still good.

Can't wait to read the next one

This book is about a man named Henderson. He works as a spy and he was sent to germany to destroy their submarines.the submarine have stopped Britsh boat from transporting food, fuel and weapons. If they aren't stopped British people would starve. I picked this book up because some one told me that it was a good book. I finished this book because it was interesting and it kept me reading for the entire time. I would recommend this book to Eric or Kevish because their interested in things that ha ...more

I really enjoyed this book. This entire series really. However, it has a GIGANTIC loose end left that will most likely be the central plot of the next book. This isn't really a review so don't read on if that's what you want. I really want to read the next one already but I might have difficult time obtaining a copy coz this entire series isn't available in th Philippines. I was only able to read this coz a friend of mine bought it abroad.
Emily
The fourth one in the Henderson Boys series is great! It has plenty of action and thrills but it seems to me as though Muchamore has become more brazen with his words so it kinda puts me off a bit. However I really enjoyed it and I love how everything seems to be going right but then ends up getting worse and then of course good again. If you've been reading the series, this book will definitely not disappoint.
Zainab
May I just say, Robbo, I'm disappointed in you. Henderson's Boys? Do you not think that we have reached the stage yet that even if there is at least one female in the group, it should be acknowledged?
You cut me real deep Robbo.

Besides that, this is by far my favourite in the *cough* HB series. A great novel with many unexpected twists. Loved it!
Jack
great book very realistic and gritty, about teenage spys under the comand of charles henderson. its set in france in the second world war where they are working undercover to sabotage a german u boat factory. there is some quite exiting gunfights and i didnt think i would be able to keep my cover under all that presure.
Nina
I just dont know what to think except i KNEW IT. i knew someone was going to be captured sooner or later. Spoiler: Marc is captured and sent to Germany. EnD OF SPOILERS

Ok, it is realistic to assume that someone would have to be. That is all I am saying.
Jessica H
Grey Wolves is a brilliant book, it is really interesting and is full of action. I couldn't find one boring page in the whole book. This book teaches you about the brutal World War II in occupied Europe, it also teaches you about friendship.
Daniel Whyte
This is the certainly the best Henderson boys book.
It even rivals some the churbe books this book
It is what I thought I would be reading when I picked up the first Henderson boys
Another side of Charles Henderson when he thinks marc is dead

I gave up. It's not that it isn't a good book, I just couldn't really get into the history of it- I think I was too hopeful for something like CHERUB.
Pamela Saylor
This was a good book. It's amazing how the Germans never suspect what they're doing. Can't wait to find out what happens to Marc in the next book
Anna
Brilliant! I found it much better than it's preceding ones in the series. Good storyline as usual Rob!

The Hunger Games phenomenon is part of the huge YA / Children's book explosion that has grown, thanks to the British Rat pack of YA authors, Anthony Horowitz, Robert Muchamore, Joe Craig and Charlie Higson. We owe
