Synopsis

Terror of the Swamp by John Townsend

Ex-SAS explorer Baron and his son Greg have been sent to the African jungle to find a lost TV crew. The crew were looking for a living dinosaur that is said to lurk in the vast jungle swamp. Baron and Greg start on a search that brings them face to face with the mysterious ancient terrors of the swamp. And it could cost them their lives. Action! Adventure! Danger! This standalone book from Jonny Zucker's Toxic series is a fast-moving chapter book, filled with high-quality black and white illustrations to grab readers' attention. The Toxic series reads are ideal for reluctant and struggling readers who are enthused by short, fast-paced adventure stories. The cliff-hanger at the end of nearly every chapter certainly helps!

Reviews

petrifying, thrilling, mysterious and chilling. I really loved this book. It has short chapters and doesn't take long to read. You will really enjoy this book if you like reading scary books, snakes or mysteries. I enjoyed this so much that I asked Mr Biddle if John Townsend can be our focus author next term. Dylan, Year Four, WEJS
