Project X: White: Inventors and Inventions: Underwater Adventure by Tony Bradman

In the story Underwater Adventure, Tiger drops his special watch in the pond in the park. Max and Ant set off to rescue it in their new invention, the Super Micro-Submarine. But it does not go to plan when they are chased by some water-beetle larva and end up stuck at the bottom of the pond! Find out if Cat and Tiger can find the spare part they need to fix the submarine in time, in Cuckoo Trouble. Ant gets inventing again in Ant and the Break-bot. In this story the children build an amazing, break-dancing robot to enter into a competition. Find out about man's attempts to fly, from Leonardo da Vinci to SpaceShipOne, in the non-fiction book Flying Machines. Then read about some incredible inventions that help us explore the most extreme environments in Extreme Exploring Machines. 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 Inventors and Inventions Guided Reading Notes provide step-by-step guided reading support for each book in the Inventors and Inventions 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.


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!
