Synopsis

Portal to Halycrus by Kiera Wong

This work features manga-styled graphic and illustrated novels with exciting sci-fi plots to engage even the most reluctant readers. Each of the three series is split across four ability levels and follows a different group of characters as they explore outer space. The teachers' resource book provides guided reading notes and activities on each book and the accompanying CD-ROM provides templates and artwork for writing a new graphic novel together with short one-off writing activities. Special features include: sophisticated, cool characters; high action plots engage even the most reluctant readers; mixture of boys and girls as the main protagonists; and, character profiles and glossaries. What is on the CD-ROM: short writing tasks; everything you need to write your own graphic novel: character cards, clipart and artwork from the graphic novels, and graphic novel frame. Vicious swine hunting above ground. Strange aliens hidden underground. What kind of world has Scott stumbled into?
