Synopsis

Point Danger by Catherine MacPhail

Point Danger loomed above me. I tried not to think of all the stories: the ghostly sailors, the serial killer, the headless bodies. They didn't seem so funny now. I opened the door and went inside. It was as cold as the grave. The wind from the sea roared through the broken window. I could hear the tide rushing in... Mark is always in trouble. Now on a last warning, he's determined not to do anything wrong on the school trip (although, in his opinion, he is never the one at fault).When two bullies dare another boy to go inside a crumbling lighthouse, Mark can't stop himself from following. But can he keep them both out of danger, and himself out of trouble, when he gets inside? *Help Key Stage 3 students move from Level 3b to Level 3a in reading.*Support comprehension with the expressive, age-appropriate illustrations.*Encourage shared and guided reading using the ready-made tasks and discussion points on the activity pages at the back of the book.
