Description

So you want to be a pop star. Where do you find a band? How do you get a gig? What's recording all about? And most important - do you look cool? It's all in this book. Get the facts. Then read the story 'The Stormers' and find out what happens when pride gets in the way of making great music.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
