Extreme!: Series


An exciting, dynamic non-fiction series of more than 30 titles covering a wide range of topics from Motorbikes to Rats and everything in between! Attention-grabbing titles such as ‘War Machines: The Deadliest Weapons in History’, ‘Lights Out! Living in 24 hour Darkness’, and ‘Fried!: When Lightning Strikes’ will draw children in – especially boys. Characterised by full-colour, crisp photographs, good-sized print , each page chock full of incredible and fascinating chunks of information; a combination of full text and information boxes enable children of differing abilities to enjoy the same book. Key words explained at the bottom of each page and useful glossary at the back together with suggestions for further information – websites, films, books. The high-interest topics but accessible language and layout mean these books can be used across a wide age range and across the curriculum too. There are free downloadable teaching notes to accompany the Extreme series on the A & C Black website.
