"David Orme is such a great children's writer! With Starchasers he has surpassed even his own high standards."
Nicola Harris, SEN Teacher, Shinewater School
Written by popular children's author David Orme, Starchasers is a series of classic space adventures with a modern Manga twist.
The high action plots and entertaining characters, combine with simple sentences and controlled vocabulary to ensure these are simple yet rewarding reads for reluctant and struggling readers.
The books follow the escapades of the Starchasers – a team of freelance space adventurers who will take on just about any mission that’s legal and earns good money. Finn, Misha Hanson and Suma spend their days exploring the far reaches of the galaxy, trying to keep out of trouble and steer clear of the shady Murko and Doctor Rivet – but not often managing it.
Supported by superb black and white illustrations throughout, each fast-paced story is approximately 2,600 words long, and packed with action and humour that will help carry the reluctant reader from beginning to end with ease.
