Level Up

Videogame-obsessed Flo gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself INSIDE her favourite game. Turns out, virtual reality isn’t as much fun when it’s not so virtual.
When Flo’s engineer mum creates a device that will make her image appear in her videogames, Flo can’t wait to use it! Ignoring her mum’s warnings that it’s not ready, Flo accidentally transports herself into the game, along with her not-so-keen-on-videogames-and-wishing-he’d-stayed-home best friend Max. Immersed in the world of Star Smasher, they not only have to face armies of soldiers, but also the very real possibility that there may not be a way out…

Our Review Panel says...

Flo loves gaming but gets more than she bargains for when she meddles with one of her mum’s technological inventions and finds herself sucked into a video game. Can she use all of her gaming know-how to get herself and her friend Max out in one piece? A great choice of illustrated chapter book that will appeal to reluctant readers in KS2.
