Project X CODE is a book-by-book series built for SEN and struggling readers aged 6-11. Welcome to Micro World, invented by Macro Marvel - an amazing theme park where you have to shrink to get in! Disaster strikes when CODE, the computer that controls the park and the robots inside, goes wrong and wants to shrink the world. Team X and Mini Marvel have a new mission - to battle the BITEs, collect the CODE keys, rescue Macro Marvel, stop CODE, and save the world! Each book contains 2 texts: Text 1 is 100% decodable to build reading confidence, and Text 2 is at least 80% decodable including the same target phonemes and Tricky words but with more varied vocabulary to develop comprehension and motivate struggling readers. Team X and Mini are in the Fiendish Falls zone when Ant is carried away in Swoopie Mischief. Cat and Tiger are in danger in Capsized! Find out about the terrifying BITE in The BITE Below. Max is in a very unusual place in A Croco-BITE Smile. Join Team X and Mini in the Big Freeze zone. The friends track the Ice-BITE in Frozen With Fear and find out more in Swball Attack. Max, Cat and Ant are high on the mountain in Skyway Danger, but there's danger ahead in Ice Fight.
