Red Devil Down by Charlie Carter

Title: Red Devil Down

Author: Charlie Carter

Published: Pan Australia, 2009

Pages: 89

Series: Book 2, Battle Boy

Snippet: "Sparks will be flying soon."

Summary: Battle Boy is in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's supposed to be finding out who shot down the Red Baron - the most famous pilot of World War One.

Review: Red Devil Down is a pretty small book but then again it is for younger readers and it is highly entertaining for such a small book.

I think this book is best suited for boys ages 8-12. There are some big words and themes that might not be so suitable for anyone younger.

I think Red Devil Down is good for giving people a brief glimpse at history and if they're interested they can look into the topic a bit more.

There's not a lot else I can say about this book except that I don't know about the protagonist, Napoleon, this is the second book and he's been disobedient twice. It just annoys me a little bit.

Anyway, Red Devil Down was really interesting.
