The Awful Astronaut, Hardback

The Awful Astronaut Hardback

Illustrated by Davide Ortu

Part of the Race Further with Reading series



Horrible Histories meets Wimpy Kid in these funny stories mismatching characters with careers.

The stories are colour chapter books perfect for the independent reader.

Sam Jones cannot wait to be an astronaut but there is a problem; in fact there are many: he is very clumsy, gets travel sick, and is generally disaster prone!

Race Further with Reading is a series designed to build reading confidence with illustrated stories in manageable bite-size chapters, which encourage a sense of achievement at completing each one.

They follow on a level from the Race Ahead with Reading series with stories of 2,000 words.

The books are perfect for children aged 6-8 or who read book band 11.
