Product description

Jungle Planet is part of the new Starchasers series. These classic, fast paced, high action space adventures are perfect for children aged 8-14 who have a reading age of 8-9. The books follow the antics of the Starchasers – a team of freelance space adventurers who will take on just about any mission that’s legal and earns good money.

In Jungle Planet, the Starchasers are out of work and hard up for cash so they decide to explore the far reaches of space for a money-making opportunity. A planet covered in thick jungle grabs their attention so Suma and Finn take the lander down to get a closer look. Distracted by his virtual games helmet, Finn doesn’t notice the jungle advancing until it’s too late. The planet is alive with thick rubbery creepers and it has the lander in it’s grips! It’s up to Misha to land the Lightspinner and come to Finn and Suma’s rescue. Can she negotiate the viscious vines? And will the jungle hold the treasures the Starchasers are searching for?

Published by Ransom Publishing, the exciting plots and entertaining characters ensure Starachsers are classic, simple and rewarding reads for reluctant and struggling readers. Supported by superb black and white illustrations throughout, each story is approximately 2600 words long, with carefully controlled vocabulary and simple sentences that will help carry the reluctant reader from beginning to end.
