In The Ruby Cage, Max, Cat and Nok are chased by a scary Minatroll ...but will it get them? Max and Cat find a pyrite panther stuck in a crevice.

In Race to the Pyramid, Ant, Tiger and Seven track their friends to the Crystal Pyramid, but they find the Krools have got there before them. Will the micro-friends be able to find their way through the deadly pyramid maze and escape the Krool commander? Find out in One Step Ahead. Nok is trapped in the Chamber of Treasures. The micro-friends have to save him, find the fragment and escape there enough time? 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.


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 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 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
