Scavenger: Chaos Zone
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
The second in the Scavenger series, Chaos Zone finds York and his robot Zoid friend Belle exploding from a ventilation tube into a strange forest. A thousand years into space, the animals and plants aboard the city-sized Biosphere spaceship have mutated. But what has happened to the humans on board the ship?
This is a fantastic action-packed read for older primary children and teens, exploring classic science fiction themes of survival, what it means to be human and the threat of technology, alongside key issues of friendship and belonging. Chris Riddell's stupendous illustrations throughout help give the story the pace of a graphic novel whilst retaining the depth of a novel.
