Alex Rider new covers for 15th birthday re release

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Hard to imagine that it’s 15 years since Alex Rider first burst into action on fast-flipped pages of adventure and danger. Still incredibly relevant for boys and girls today we think it’s time to introduce him to a whole new generation of wannabe secret agents. This beloved series has re-defined the spy genre and has been pivotal in getting a generation of boys and not forgetting girls reading for pleasure. Tell your tweens and early teens, the new look Alex Rider editions will be out in April but be one of the the first to see the covers, revealed 17 February for the first time at a big event in London! We can’t wait!
