Project X: Phonics Blue: 11d Ant's Hamster by Tony Bradman

These books are ideal for developing readers to help broaden their vocabulary and give them confidence with sounds and words as they learn to read. Consolidate sounds and tricky words from previous phases in the Exploring Letters book. Then read the accompanying fiction and non-fiction. Read four exciting, action-packed micro-adventures featuring the familiar Project X characters, Max, Cat, Ant and Tiger. Play in the snow with Cat, Ant and Tiger in The Pit and go onboard a ship with the micro-friends in Ship Shape. Find out what Ant's hamster gets up to in Ant's Hamster and join Max on his adventures and around the world in Max's Adventure. Also, find out about superheroes in the fun, phonic non-fiction title Super Powers! Or find out how to make your own volcano in It Erupts! Each book is designed for adults to read to children with appropriate text for children to read, plus there are lots of ideas for talk and other activities to make the learning fun.

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!
