Author(s): John Townsend
This is a new title in the Breakouts series. Hari presses on into the hostile mountains in the hope of finding the bandits hideout and rescuing Maya. Soon he faces the first danger as night descends and the wolves howl in the moonlight, with tigers and snow leopards somewhere beyond...in the very heart of Yeti country...A lone -boy's odyssey through the ice and snow - with twists, turns and more than a few surprises. The Breakouts books offer exciting, shorter stories (just 48pp each) for readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want fast-paced, adventure stories. Peril in the Snow is ideal for reluctant readers aged 9-12 with a reading age of 8-11.
John Townsend was born in Chelmsford, Essex, and discovered his enchantment with books at an early age. As a child, he wrote mini dramas, silly poems and stories to tell the cat. Whether or not the cat wanted to hear them is another matter! His love of hiking and the outdoors led him to become a geography teacher in Gloucestershire, writing pantomimes and plays for the annual drama productions. His first publication was inspired by his rusty old Morris Minor, and nearly 200 books later, he is now a full-time writer. Mainly focusing on non-fiction, he is a National Literacy Trust 'Reading Champion', and runs boys' literacy projects in schools.
