High-interest topics that make science exciting.

How to Catapult a Castle is full of incredible information about castles, from how to invade a castle with enormous battering rams, giant catapults and flaming arrows, to how to defend it with murderous spiked weapons and boiling water.

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.
