What is needed for life? Why is the Earth right for life? Where else might there be life? How did life start on Earth? Did it come from space? Get the answers. Get the facts. Then read 'The Search for Life', a great story about how life started on one planet in the universe.

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.
