Project X: Invasion: Alien Invasion by Mike Brownlow

Part of the dynamic reading programme Project X, this book is truly boy-friendly. Project X is a reading programme that has been developed based on research into what will really hook boys into reading and make them love books. Project X includes fiction and non-fiction, exciting adventure stories, lots of gadgets, and 21st-century illustrations. Each book comes with notes for parent/teaching assistants that highlight tricky words or concepts in the books, prompt questions and suggest a range of follow-up activities.

As well as creating the book, Mike has also written several of the episodes for the TV series.
