This gripping interstellar adventure will keep kids hooked right to the very end. An accompanying activity pack adds to the fun whilst an enamel pin and bookmark are gifts to be treasured.
A brilliant present for an older child with a thirst for adventure!
Orion Lost by Alastair Chisholm tells the story of an ill-fated mission from Earth to settle a distant planet. It’s a fantastic novel for girls and boys aged 8-12.
When Beth, Vihaan and their friends awake to find their ship is badly damaged and all adults onboard are in simulated sleep, it’s up to them to try and navigate home safely. The plot keeps twisting to a very satisfying conclusion, as the kids come up against space pirates, aliens and an AI they’re really not sure they can trust.
This is a substantial book that independent readers can really get their teeth into. For slightly less confident readers, it’s perfect for enjoying together with an adult at bedtime.
Whether this is a first foray into sci-fi or they’re already fans of the genre, this is a novel not to be missed.
With the accompanying activity pack, kids will be able to answer our book club-style questions, learn more about humans in space, imagine life on a distant planet, make a galaxy in a jar and create a solar system pizza. There are also jokes, word puzzles, book recommendations and links to great websites to explore.
The “Hooked on Books” enamel pin badge will look great on any jacket or bag, whilst our sturdy bookmark, complete with a reading-themed joke, is the perfect addition to any bookworm’s shelf.
