James Bone and The Italian JobJames Bone and The Italian Job by Frank Bell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

James Bone and the Italian Job is a children’s book most suitable for junior school children around the ages of 8 – 11 years old. James Bone and his friends are all animals. It opens with an introduction from Winston, a British Bulldog who lives with the Chancellor of the Exchequer at Number 11 Downing Street, London. He tells us about one of the adventures of secret agent 007 James Bone.

Humphrey is the Downing Street cat and he is the first to hear about the kidnapping of the Queen on a particularly fine day in May. He rushed to inform his good friend James Bone. James works for CI6 (Canine Intelligence) and is soon summoned to headquarters and given the responsibility of finding the Queen.

At Buckingham Palace James questions the palace animals and receives useful information from Henrietta mouse, who saw a suspicious bundle being taken away by a Pizza delivery company.

With the help of Sherlock Holmes they believe the Mafia have taken the Queen and a daring rescue mission is organised.

This is a fun read and if children know the famous characters who are mirrored in this book they should really enjoy the storyline.

  1. Hi, Rosie – I like the idea that Sherlock Holmes is included in the stories. Maybe it will make younger readers want to delve into the real Sherlock Holmes.

  2. James Bone and the Italian Job looks like a clever and fun book. This would be a great book to read aloud to kids – I’m sure adults would like at as much as kids because of the references to other detective. Thanks for sharing!
