Can Zainey and Dan capture the creature in the school heating system?

When there’s a creature on the loose in the school heating system, Zainey and Dan need to capture it before it finds a new home, or a new host!

  • Sucked Out is the second title in the Lightning Strikes series by John Parker. Revisiting our favourite characters we meet in Sucked In, this title can also be read as a stand alone story
  • Scattered throughout each story are a variety of informal text types such as emails, web pages, posters, ads, notes, articles, diagrams etc to help break up the text and to add to the contemporary design. The design includes funky chapter heads, wide leading, generous type and plenty of white space
  • Short, fast-paced novels, laced with a good dose of humour and which make few demands on the reader. Aiming at 9- 14 year old age group - especially those who haven’t yet been 'struck' by the reading bug. Similar readership to Penguin’s 'Aussie Chomp' series, but with a more graphic and funky approach, to try to appeal to a wider audience
