For young readers aged between 9-14, make room on your bookshelf for a hilarious and fun-filled addition. The Ross Welford 4 book set is a fantastic collection of plots that take children on one adventure after another. Transitioning teens will appreciate the maturity of these books that is met with plenty of laughter, as they increase their independence in reading. 

Ross Welford has a knack for combining science and philosophical questions in stories that stem from things we all understand – family, friendship, self-discovery and love. Georgie and her friend Ramzy are fascinated by the eccentric Dr Pretorius and the amazing VR machine she’s created in her secret hideout on the Whitley Bay seafront.  She claims it can send them into the future, something Georgie is willing to try, despite the dangers, if the future holds a cure for the disease that is threatening all dogs – including her beloved Mister Mash – and even humanity itself.  Welford cleverly balances tension with humour and sets readers thinking about what’s really important in our lives. This is another warm-hearted, intelligent and gripping adventure from a consistently excellent author.

Titles in set:

  • The 1,000 Year Old Boy
  • The Dog Who Saved The World
  • What Not To Do If You Turn Invisible
  • The Kid Who Came From Space

The 1,000-year-old Boy

Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England. Obviously no one believes him. So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live

What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible

From the author of the unforgettable bestseller TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER comes another surprising, beautiful and funny novel about a child who, by disappearing, will write herself into your heart forever. Turning invisible at will: it’s one way of curing your acne. But far more drastic than 13 year-old Ethel Leatherhead intended when she tried a combination of untested medicines and a sunbed. It’s fun at first, being invisible. And aided by her friend Boydy, she manages to keep her extraordinary ability secret. Or does she? When one day the invisibility fails to wear off, Ethel is thrown into a nightmare of lies and deception as she struggles to keep herself safe, to find the remedy that will make her seen again and solve the mystery of her own birth

The Dog who Saved the World

When eleven-year-old Georgie befriends an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual-reality 3D version of the future.

But then a deadly disease threatens the life of every dog in the country and Georgies beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. And that’s only the start of her troubles. Soon, Georgie and Mr Mash must embark on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth, and maybe even all of humanity without actually leaving the room. An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all, and a huge idea at its heart, this is time travel" but not as you know it.

Prepare to get stuck into one book after another with this action-packed set of four. The entire collection provides young readers with a chance to expand their skills in reading while still having plenty of fun as they’re exposed to more complex sentence structure and move away entirely from illustrations. In these novel-like titles, readers will enjoy being encouraged to explore their imagination, whether it’s going back in time, reading about the days of a 1,000 year old boy, following a heroic dog or being invisible! Each book has a wonderful narrative in its own right and they are all different so there is something for everyone. The great news is that this collection of 4 books doesn’t need to be approached in any particular order, leaving young readers with the difficult decision of which one to choose first! 

By this age, eager bookworms aged between 9-14 may enjoy reading as one of their favourite pastimes, also using this as the perfect opportunity to further develop their literacy skills in the comfort of their own home. They’ll confidently be able to decipher what is possible and what isn’t when it comes to fiction books but that won’t stop them from enjoying the fun-filled plots they’re about to encounter in this epic set. Using these stories to encourage reading for longer periods of time, or before bedtime, can be a great way to switch off and unwind with a light-hearted read.
