This is a stylish new edition of the acclaimed graphic novel adaptation of Alex Rider's second thrilling mission. Investigations into the accidental deaths of two of the world's most powerful men have revealed just one link: both had a son attending Point Blanc Academy, a school for rebellious rich kids run by the sinister Dr Grief and set high in the French Alps. Armed with a new collection of gadgets, Alex must infiltrate the academy as a pupil and establish the truth about what is really happening there. This title features full-colour, action-packed, manga-style art. Following the triumphant, international publication of Stormbreaker: The Graphic Novel , the whole Alex Rider graphic novel series has gained wide recognition among reviewers, fans and literacy experts. With literacy levels among children in the UK lower than ever, this is a series of books that may offer an accessible and compelling alternative for otherwise reluctant readers.
