Synopsis

Project X: Gold: Head to Head: I'm the Leader! by Tony Bradman

In the story Top of the Table, Cat and Tiger are disappointed when their football match might be called off. When they begin to argue, Ant comes up with a micro-way for them to be able to resolve their differences. In Power Racers, Max, Cat, Ant and Tiger go head to head with a racing car game found in Tiger's garage. Tiger challenges Max's leadership in I'm the Leader!, but he soon realizes that being a leader is not as easy as a job as he thinks...especially when Cat gets into trouble. Find out about games played through the ages, from ancient Egypt to virtual reality, in the non-fiction book Game On!. Then read about some amazing record breakers, including snake bathing and worm charming, in An A-Z of Record Breakers. Each book comes with notes for parents that highlight ambitious words or concepts in the books, prompt questions and suggest a range of follow-up activities. The Head to Head Guided Reading Notes provide step-by-step guided reading support for each book in the Head to Head cluster, together with guidance about comprehension, assessment for learning and vocabulary enrichment. Hands-on follow-up activities, plenty of writing opportunities and cross-curricular links are also provided for each book.

About the Author

Tony Bradman

Tony Bradman was born in 1954 (not during the Jurassic era, as his children have been known to claim). He went to school in London, and then Cambridge University. After university he worked in the music press, then became Deputy Editor of Parents magazine, and began reviewing children’s books. He had his first book for children published in 1985 and became a full-time author in 1987.

Tony loves films and popular culture. He lives in Beckenham, Kent with his wife Sally and their three children Emma, Helen and Thomas and Rufus the cat.

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
