Interest Age 8+ Reading Age 8 | In a nutshell: edge-of-the-seat stuff that puts comradeship at the heart of the action As ever, Chris Bradford begins his story explosively, and then keeps the tension super-taut until the very last chapters. Despite his special bullet-catcher ability Troy is at the mercy of The Judge, one of the most ruthless and wicked villains you’re likely to encounter, and his friend and colleague Kasia is in a coma: could this be the end for SPEAR’s battalion of teenage super spies? Of course not! The fight back offers everything you would expect from this author and this series, nail-biting scenes and confrontations, and the triumph of teamwork and good over evil. It’s super satisfying, and super readable. ~ Andrea Reece Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 9+ Barrington Stoke is the foremost publisher of dyslexia friendly books and those for reluctant readers.

Fictional superheroes don’t come much more appealing than Troy, one of a group of teenagers with awesome super powers recruited by secret agency SPEAR to protect society against a gang of ruthless terrorists, and the premise for the Bullet Catcher series will be irresistible to anyone who’s ever dreamed of being a hero, i.e. pretty well all of us. As always in Bradford’s books, the action is fast and furious, with just enough time between the explosions and thrills for a touch of humour or character development. The ending will leave readers on tenterhooks for the next part in the series too. Described by publisher Barrington Stoke as super readable, this definitely meets that description. ~ Andrea Reece Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+ Barrington Stoke is the foremost publisher of super-readable short fiction by some of the very best children’s authors and illustrators in the UK.

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8 Troy is quietly reading a Batman comic when all hell breaks loose. He’s caught up in a terrorist attack that kills his parents – so far so Bruce Wayne – but also reveals he has a superpower: he’s bulletproof, due to some biological quirk his body can withstand ten times the impact that steel can. Troy is whisked away by mysterious secret agent types to train with a group of similarly extraordinary teens. And of course, he gets to come up against the man who killed his parents. Bulletcatcher has as many bangs and explosions per page as the best comic adventure, and convincing human relationships between the SPEAR kids too. A super-satisfying read for fans of Avengers and their ilk. ~ Andrea Reece July 2015 Book of the Month | One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2015 Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+ Barrington Stoke is the foremost publisher of dyslexia friendly books and those for reluctant readers.
