Walk into Danger by David Orme, Helen Orme

Slipstream is a new generation of reading resources specifically designed for struggling and reluctant readers. Through exciting and carefully levelled texts, Slipstream enables readers to accelerate their reading experience. This illustrated story is part of Slipstream LEVEL 1. The 300-word text is levelled for readers with a reading age of 5-7, but its engaging content makes it perfect for a wide range of older readers too. All texts are levelled by reading experts Dee Reid and Diana Bentley. Simon and Lia are on a hike, but they get lost. It starts to snow and they can't see the path. They hear a voice calling. A man has broken his leg. Simon and Lia must find a way to get help, before it's too late...

About the Author

David Orme has written over 300 books, including children's fiction and non-fiction, graphic novels, poetry, and books for teachers. Many of his recent titles have been aimed at reluctant and struggling readers, with a low level text but with content suitable for older children. This had led to some surprising, if not unlikely titles, such as How to Be a Pop Star. Children only need one glance at David to suspect that he knows nothing at all about the subject - and they are right! His fiction has been translated into a number of languages. David's most recent book for teachers, Unlocking the Poet in Every Child, is his distillation of a lifetime working with children, first as a teacher then as a writing workshop leader in schools. His latest novel, The Bodysnatcher's Apprentice, is for adults and older teens. Kev Hopgood is a children's illustrator and comic book artist. He works for a wide variety of publishers in the UK, US and Europe. Past clients include Marvel comics, for whom he co-created the character War Machine which appeared in the latest Iron Man movie. He's also worked in the educational and ELT field for publishers such as Oxford University Press, Barrington Stoke & Franklin Watts
