Pop & Fizz Media, 2014.
Water mutant. ISBN 9781921931710 (Previously published as Aquaterros)
Air mutant. ISBN 9781921931697 (Previously published as Flamatoraq)
Storm mutant. ISBN 9781921931703 (Previously published as Stormasaurix)
(Age: 6-9) With brand new covers and new titles these 3 books in the Boys Vs beast series will appeal to newly independent readers especially boys. The print is large, each book has 8 chapters and the final battle scene is vividly described in a 4 page comic style scenario. Each book can be read independently, with an introduction at the beginning which sets the scene for the adventure that Kai Masters will undergo. And what adventures he has! There are plenty of thrills and spills and action galore to engage the attention of the intended audience as Kai battles the mutant beasts. A website for the series allows the young reader to make their own beast.
