Get set for a rip-roaring ride as we review a selection of adventure stories.
Baboon by David Jones (Chicken House, £5.99 PB)
An intriguing and well-paced adventure story about a 14-year-old-boy called Gerry who is involved in a devastating plane crash over the African Savannah with his zoologist parents. Gerry is amazed when he discovers his own injured body in the wreckage and realises that he has undergone a miraculous change – he is now a baboon!
Gerry watches helplessly as a team of paramedics drives both his damaged body and his worried parents away, and knows he will have to survive as best he can in the inhospitable African bush. An exciting and involving tale that should appeal to both boys and girls.
Suitable for: boys; girls; older readers.
H.I.V.E: Dreadnought by Mark Walden (Bloomsbury, £6.99 PB)
