Earlier this year, I bought the Project X Alien Adventures (series 1 and 2) books, which my son LOVES. His teacher has also told me that she is thrilled with his progress in reading so, frankly, it was one of the best £30 I’ve ever spent.
Recently, he has been fretting that, at some point, he will finish series 2 and have no more books to read. Now, he does have plenty to read but all the same I’ve been looking for series 3. Which doesn’t exist. The Book People have told me that they have no plans to stock series 3 and the kind man from the Oxford University Press said that the easiest thing to do is to order the three sets of level 15/16, 17/18 and 19/20 books (8 books in each set so 24 in total) – if I order the three sets in one go, he will give me 20% off. However, even with the discount, it will still be about £160 which does seem a bit heartbreaking.
Perhaps I’ll wait until he actually finishes series 2 before I start thinking of getting series 3.
