Synopsis

Project X Alien Adventures: Brown Book Band, Oxford Level 9: Crunch Time! by Elen Caldecott

Blast off on the biggest micro-adventure yet with the popular Project X characters Max, Cat, Ant and Tiger and their new alien micro-friend, Nok. Carefully levelled and highly motivating, this book is ideal for independent reading. The crew of the Excelsa are on the trail of the king and queen of Exis, but the trail leads them to a junk cruncher a giant recycling machine that chews up metal space waste. When Max, Cat and Nok teleport on to the junk cruncher, instead of finding the king and queen, they come up against a robotic Krool ...will they get away? This book also contains notes on the inside front and back covers that highlight challenge words, prompt questions and give a follow-up activity to support children in their reading and comprehension skills.

Reviews

It's definitely worth reading. It's really different. * Thomas, age 8 * It's really fun and you don't know what's going to happen next. * Richard, age 8 * It's exciting to read about different planets. * Lauren, age 7 * It's exciting and dramatic. * Ella, age 8 * It's got scary bits, exciting bits and you don't know what's going to happen in the end so you just have to read it. * Daisy, age 7 * All my friends like Dr Who so I know they will like this. * Billy, age 6 *
