Synopsis

Project X: Alien Adventures: Purple: The Sands of Akwa 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.
