Synopsis

Project X Origins: Grey Book Band, Oxford Level 14: in the News: The Big Story by Dominic Barker

Project X Origins is a ground-breaking guided reading programme for the whole school. Action-packed stories, fascinating non-fiction and comprehensive guided reading support meet the needs of children at every stage of their reading development. Jack Rico is a 10-year-old budding journalist, desperate to scoop The Big Story that will land him in a national newspaper. But can his investigative snooping turn up anything that is actually newsworthy? Each book contains inside cover notes that highlight challenge words, prompt questions and a range of follow-up activities to support children in their reading.

About the Author

Dominic Barker

Dominic Barker was born in 1966 in Southport only months after England won the World Cup. He studied English at Birmingham University, and subsequently was a stand-up comic with the likes of Frank Skinner and Alan Davies, then a secondary school teacher, before writing his first series for young readers about a teenage detective, Mickey Sharp. Dominic has since written three anarchic spoof-quests featuring the hapless hero Blart (the boy who didn’t want to save the world) and is currently working on a new stand alone novel called Adam and the Arkonauts. Dominic lives in Spain.
