Orphaned when their spy parents were killed during an operation, Tom and Zilla are normally cooped up at boarding school. But when the only way to get at a target is by using a child, MI5 bring them in to help. Mission Alert tells the story of some of their adventures; the brother and sister spy duo must dig deep to survive!

Printed on tinted paper and with a dyslexia friendly font, Mission Alert is aimed at readers aged 8+ and has a manageable length (72 pages) and reading age (7+). This collection of stories can be read in any order. Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
