Project X Code: Marvel a Bite Inside by James Noble, Karen Ball, 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. In Marvel Towers, Mini makes a shocking discovery in A Shock for Mini. In A BITE Inside, Team X go into Macro Marvel's body to find a BITE. There's an exciting chase in Mission Marvel, and the BITE is defeated in Race Against Time. In CODE Control, Team X face CODE in a thrilling conclusion. They meet the worst BITE yet in CODE's Countdown and plan how to defeat it in The Last BITE. In Eye to Eye, their plan fails. CODE is finally stopped in Stop CODE! ...or is it?
