High-interest topics that make science exciting.

Extreme Lunch shows just how tough it can be to live in the natural world, how all plants and animals have adapted to survive and how they are all a part of the food chain. Read about the spiders that rot their prey from within, the most powerful punch in the world, and flies that really get under your skin!

From Surfing to the Secret Life of Rats, the Extreme series will excite and inspire 8 to 11 year olds. High-interest topics grab the reader and introduce key science concepts in an accessible and innovative way. The action-packed pages are designed to motivate struggling and reluctant readers, and a reading age of 7 makes the content super-accessible. Extreme titles are ideal for supporting creative classroom teaching and for spicing up topic libraries.
