Books, boys and Dr Evil
A series of storybooks for primary schools, using digital pictures and action-packed storylines, has been created to encourage boys to read. Project X, features four friends, three boys, Max, Ant and Tiger, and a girl, Cat, who are pitched against Dr Evil, a wicked scientist who wants to shrink the world. As boys are frequently attracted to non-fiction, each group of books in the Project X series is accompanied by a non-fiction book full of interesting facts and diagrams.
