Space Station Alert by David Orme, Helen Orme


Space Station Alert by David Orme, Helen Orme

Space station duty can be boring - but when a direct hit causes the air supply to fail, Chris and Rob are far from bored. Ground control has been hit by a hurricane so there's no help on the way from Earth, and they have just 12 hours to try to save themselves...This book is part of Slipstream LEVEL 2. The 350-word text is levelled for readers with a reading age of 7-9, 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.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
