These were the turning point to loving reading -

This series (1 & 2) was the start of my son loving reading, followed by Beast Quest and then Harry Potter. The Aliens were the easy-reading but addictive set that captured his imagination and put him in his own world of reading whereas it had been the dreaded homework before this point.

They probably aren't written in the most challenging English but from my perspective they were perfect as he just got the bug and hasn't looked back, although he has read the set again recently - just for fun!

Project X Alien Adventures Series 1 Collection -

EXCELLENT series of books. My 6-year-old son couldn't put these books down; we'd read two together at bedtime and he'd read at least two independently in bed before going to sleep. After a six-month break, we have just re-read Series 1 and we have ordered and are looking forward to reading Series 2... will Nok save his parents and his home planet?

LOVED these - helped my hesitant reading son into a super reader -

My son (who is now 7 but was 6 when he started reading these) was a hesitant reader. He didn't enjoy it at all and was at the reading age of 4/5. I bought these for him for Christmas 2016 and he fell in love with reading. He has just finished reading the whole set and loved them all.

His teacher is so happy with his progress, and he is now at reading age of 9.5! We hadn't read anything about these characters before but that didn't matter: they were easy to pick up in from. I am about to order the second series for my son.

Be warned..... -

As a previous reviewer has stated, this set starts with no backstory. After researching this, I realised that there are some picture-only books and basic word books that introduce the characters and back story.

For this reason the set is very confusing for someone who has not read the previous books.

Plus there is too much use of complicated names of characters, places etc.

My daughter did not want to read these and I have donated them to her school.

Fantastic collection -

My 6-year-old was not interested in reading independently but since reading this collection, that has all changed. His reading has become much more fluent and confident and he finds the stories very interesting. I am just about to purchase series 2!
