- Complete Monster - A few of the villains are pretty nasty, but Muchamore seems to really want you to hate the Fuhrer in Brigands M.C.
- No hatred for Hassam Bin Hassam? His habit of selling shoddy parts to airlines resulted in the deaths of nearly 350 people, for which he had absolutely zero remorse, he murdered his wife, and he regularly beats his son with a belt because he (Hassam) disagrees with Western Culture, despite the fact that he quite happily buys western goods.
- Family-Unfriendly Aesop - You can make easy money by breaking the law. Cool People Rebel Against Authority. Friends let friends copy their school work. Slack off at school and cheat a lot, and you too can get top marks in your exams and go to the best university. Cool people don't care about school, and certainly not church.
- Well, to be more generous to Robert Muchamore, some of this could be viewed as an example of Do Not Do This Cool Thing rather than an intentionally Family-Unfriendly Aesop.
- As well as the above, those selected for CHERUB are naturally quite smart and do actually do their work, it just isn't the focus of the story, much like the lessons in Harry Potter in the later books. Ignoring the last bit as being religious shouldn't be considered an aesop. Oh, and they get punished for slacking off as well, or have you forgotten the Deadly Training Area or the laps?
- In addition, most of the series focused on James Adams, who isn't that inclined toward schoolwork. Had it focused more on characters who are more focused on studying, then we would have seen more.
