Synopsis

Project X: Grey: Behind the Scenes: Robot Rampage by Chris Priestley

Max, Cat, Ant and Tiger are off to see the new Robo-Rex film. But little do they realize that Dr X has sent a giant size X-bot after them to get their special watches back. Find out what happens in Robot Rampage. Then find out if Max, Ant and Tiger can save Cat from the giant X-bot and defeat Dr X, in Battle of the Monster X-bot. Find out what happens behind the scenes when the children go on a special visit to see Ant's Aunt at the Greenville museum, in Journey to Mars. Can they save the day? Take a look at some amazing stunts and find out how the stunt artists do it, in Spectacular Film Stunts. Then find out about what goes on behind the scenes with a coastguard recue, how chocolate is made, and much more, in How Do They Do That?. 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 Behind the Scenes Guided Reading Notes provide step-by-step guided reading support for each book in the Behind the Scenes 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

Chris Priestley

Chris Priestley has been a cartoonist and illustrator for many years, working mainly for magazines and newspapers. He currently has a weekly strip cartoon called 'Payne's Grey' in the New Statesman.

Ever since he was a teenager Chris has loved unsettling and creepy stories, with fond memories of buying comics like 'Strange Tales' and 'House of Mystery', watching classic BBC TV adaptations of M R James ghost stories every Christmas and reading assorted weirdness by everyone from Edgar Allen Poe to Ray Bradbury. He hopes Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror will haunt his readers in the way those writers have haunted him.

This brilliantly received series of ghost stories, Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror, Tales of Terror from the Black Ship and Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth, were reissued by Bloomsbury in March 2011 including a brand new story.

Meanwhile The Dead of Winter, published by Bloomsbury in October 2010 and in paperback in October 2011, is a nail-biting story of hauntings and terror, nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2012.

Mister Creecher, published by Bloomsbury in October 2011 and in paperback in March 2012, is a gripping gothic novel about friendship, trust and betrayal.
