Young Bond Series Debut SilverFin to be Reissued as Graphic Novel

SilverFin, a Young Bond Adventure by Charlie Higson

The Young Bond Dossier is reporting the first adventure in the Young Bond series, SilverFin by Charlie Higson, will be reissued as a graphic novel by Disney in 2010 in the US. The Young Bond novels feature Ian Fleming's superspy James Bond as a teenage boy attending Eton. The 4th of the planned 5 books in the series, Hurricane Gold, was published in April.

In SilverFin, James is on holiday from stuffy boarding school, visiting his aunt and uncle in the Highlands of Scotland. Upon arriving, he learns that a local boy, Alfie Kelly, has gone missing. James teams up with the boy's cousin, Red, to investigate the disappearance. The clues lead them to the castle of Lord Hellebore, a madman with a thirst for power. Despite unknown dangers, James is determined to find the lost boy. But what he discovers in the dark basement of Hellebore's estate will forever change his life.

SilverFin was nominated for an Edgar Award in 2005. Read Jennifer's review of SilverFin by Charlie Higson on First Clues: Mysteries for Kids.
