Synopsis

Project X: Journeys and Going Places: Riding the Waves by Anthony McGowan

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.
