Synopsis

Project X Alien Adventures: Grey Book Band, Oxford Level 13: The Red Cutlass 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 robot micro-friend, Eight. Carefully levelled and highly motivating, this book is ideal for independent reading. Badlaw has put a bounty out on the Excelsa. One greedy space pirate, Captain Greenbeak, can't resist the prize. He and his motley crew of the Red Cutlass manage to capture the micro-friends and their ship. Can they escape before Greenbeak hands them over to Badlaw? Or will they be made to walk on the plank? 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 *
