Synopsis

Project X: Lime: Trapped: the Ballerina of Doom by Anthony McGowan

Tiger wants the latest Robo-Rex II toy, but Mum says that he needs to save his pocket money. Tiger decides he can't wait that long and so sets out on a micro-adventure in the story Toyshop Terror. But little does he know that there is an X-bot about! Find out if Max, Cat and Ant can rescue Tiger from the X-bot and get out of the toyshop in The Ballerina of Doom. Join the four micro-friends on an adventure in a greenhouse when Tiger gets into trouble again, in Get Me Out of Here!. Find out about escapologists in the non-fiction book Escape Artists. Then read about how prisoners have been kept though history, in Imprisoned. 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 Trapped Guided Reading Notes provide step-by-step guided reading support for each book in the Trapped 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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
