“‘…All I need to know now is whether you’re ready for the greatest adventure of your life?’
Oliver thought for a moment. Greatest adventure ever or another day at school? It was a tough one.”

Baked beans might seem harmless but, in the wrong hands and the wrong millennium, they can do a surprising amount of damage.

11-year-old Oliver Starling thinks Romans are ancient history… until he teams up with Agent Owl to stop an evil mastermind, Dr Midnight, from conquering Roman Britain with baked beans and nappy pins. Armed with only a photo booth time machine and a pocket history guide, can Oliver and Owl keep Dr Midnight from changing the course of history forever?

The first book from the debut author, Jenny Moore, whose writing is packed with humour, Agent Starling: Operation Baked Beans is a wacky, historical adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat!
