What is science fiction? Who invented it? What kinds of science fiction stories are there? Are aliens science fiction, or
are they real? Then find out about some amazing science fiction inventions, such as robots and matter transmitters. Is time
travel possible, or is that just science fiction? Then read The City: a science fiction story set in the future. It's a world
of half-people, half robots, where the Control Zone is in charge of everything. Science Fiction is part of the Trailblazers
series, published by Ransom Publishing. It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5 - 8. The books
are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme. Each book is on a strong, popular topic,
with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction
story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated "speech bubble"
version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points
for children and young adults with different reading ages.
The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books
suitable for even the poorest readers.
