Jack Briars, twelve-year old foundling, works at the court of King Henry VIII as a scribe. At least that's what most people think. Very few know that he is in fact a spy for Thomas Cromwell, King Henry's Spymaster. And that is a dangerous job.
This is a very engaging historical read for primary students - I loved it. Jack is a cheeky and courageous character and the setting is fabulous - Goodreads
