Project X Alien Adventures: Grey Book Band, Oxford Level 14: An Ancient Enemy by Steve Cole

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. The micro-friends hide from Badlaw in an old space station. It turns out to be the worst mistake of their lives. Little do they realize that they have just woken an ancient enemy ...Vogoss, none other than Badlaw's great, great grandfather! When Cat, Ant and Eight are captured by some ancient-looking Krools, Vogoss finds out about the power of the children's watches. Can they escape from his terrible clutches? 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.


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 *
