Synopsis

Project X: Grey: Behind the Scenes: Journey to Mars by Tony Bradman

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

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!
