Science fiction stories are about things that seem impossible, but might be possible one day. Things like space travel and aliens, amazing inventions and time travel, disasters and the future - both good and bad. This book covers them all. Then read the story 'The City' and see how the future might not be such a great place to live. This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
