Alien Academy by Jonny Zucker


Alien Academy by Jonny Zucker

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 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. Curtis and Deena are starting at a brand new sports academy - the facilities are out of this world! But soon they are being tested and monitored, and they realise the teachers are not quite on planet Earth.
