Synopsis

Project X: Alien Adventures: Purple: Mixed Pack x 6 by Elen Caldecott

In Tiger x 4, Tiger tries to fix the ship's fabricator, accidently creating three copies of himself! Can the micro-friends turn the disaster to their advantage when the Krools attack? Our heroes land on Planet Akwa and meet some of the local aliens but not all of them are friendly. Find out what happens in The Sands of Akwa. In Holo-board Havoc, Cat saves Tiger from a holo-board disaster, but there is yet more trouble waiting for them when they land! In Ant's Pact, Ant makes a deal with the Akwans. But will the micro-friends be able to keep their side of the bargain? Will Max, Ant and Nok be able to save a baby Raptiss and strike a deal with the terrifying creatures? Find out in The Screams of the Raptiss. In The Secret Whirlpool, Max, Ant and Nok go deep inside a huge crater to find the first fragment of Exis. But will they be able to get it? Each book comes with notes on the inside front and back covers for teachers, TAs and parents/carers, which give question prompts and points for discussion, challenge words, and additional activities that children can do.

Reviews

The books and materials appeal to both boys and girls but they include content that particularly motivates boys to read which definitely supports the teacher in class. Alien Adventures engages children and we have seen them make sustained progress in their reading development. * Stephanie James, Year 1 Teacher - Churwell Primary School, Leeds * With the detailed inside cover notes - with steps for reading before, during and after the story - they help the Teaching Assistant with minimal support from the teacher. Also helps the parents with reading at home with their child. * Miss Stephanie Cairns, Assistant Headteacher - Harrowgate Hill Primary School, Darlington * Project X Alien Adventures provides an excellent addition to our reading provision. It is an outstanding resource because the children love the characters and they become completely absorbed in the story. The gadgets, creatures and strange worlds capture their imagination and interest. When children are so engaged, it makes their capacity to learn so much greater. * Martin Fenton, Headteacher - Greenhill Primary School, Wakefield *
