    • "A boy in Year 2 was not interested in joining in any of the lessons and appeared permanently bored. When he saw the CD it instantly grabbed his attention, he became involved in what was happening on the screen and wanted to tell anyone who would listen to him about the plot and the stories. Now this boy wants to read the stories and is participating in class. His teacher is amazed at the transformation. In a nutshell, his face lit up, his attention was gained, Project X had the WOW factor for him!"

      Mrs Hall, Literacy Co-ordinator, Guiseley Infants, Leeds

    • “Project X is a great way to engage reluctant boys. Boys are keener to read and look forward to discussing the books they have read.”

      Michelle Massey, Senior Teacher, Rushmere Hall Primary, Ipswich

    • “Children enjoy the adventures of the characters. The levelled texts are attractive and appealing to children. It provides motivation to read on through levels. The modern appearance and story theme also appeals to and motivates struggling readers.”

      Sam Phillips, Reading Intervention Teacher, The Mead Community Primary School, Trowbridge, Wiltshire

    • “I went to a very professional presentation by Gary Wilson and was convinced of the quality of the books. There is good research behind Project X. Books are well matched to ability in readability but not 'over simplified' - they are real books. Most really like the characters, the fact that there are adventures that genuinely engage them and the content of the non-fiction (this isn't easy as children have very varied interests!).”

      Emma Wilson, Assistant Head Teacher, Grange Infants, Swindon
