High-interest topics that make science exciting.

Secrets of Sport is packed with everything you ever wanted to know about sport, from Formula 1 cars racing at an amazing 320 kilometres per hour to zooming down a mountain slope on a tiny luge and hang gliding - and the incredible machines that can tell who is the winner.

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.
