Synopsis

Project X Code: Shark Sea Fright by Tony Bradman, Alison Hawes, Marilyn Joyce

Project X CODE is a book-by-book series built for SEN and struggling readers aged 6-11. Welcome to Micro World, invented by Macro Marvel - an amazing theme park where you have to shrink to get in! Disaster strikes when CODE, the computer that controls the park and the robots inside, goes wrong and wants to shrink the world. Team X and Mini Marvel have a new mission - to battle the BITEs, collect the CODE keys, rescue Macro Marvel, stop CODE, and save the world! Each book contains 2 texts: Text 1 is 100% decodable to build reading confidence, and Text 2 is at least 80% decodable including the same target phonemes and Tricky words but with more varied vocabulary to develop comprehension and motivate struggling readers. Team X and Mini are in the Jungle Trail zone. Tiger falls and has an odd landing in Stampede. Find out about the Spider-BITE in Scramble to Safety and see lots of hungry plants in Stuck! The only way out is across the river in Wild Rapids. Dive deep under the sea in the Shark Dive zone. Max and Ant swim underwater in The Shark Sub and meet the Octo-BITE in Underwater Chase. Team X and Mini will need a good plan in Sea Fright, and have to act quickly in All Tied Up.
