Chicken House announces the release of BIG GAME based on the new SAMUEL L. JACKSON FILM from author Dan Smith
THE PRESIDENT HAS ONE SMALL CHANCE OF SURVIVAL
Chicken House are pleased to announce the release of Big Game, a striking action adventure book based on the major new film starring Samuel L. Jackson. Written by acclaimed children’s novelist and adult thriller writer Dan Smith, the book is available now in time for the movie’s release in May 2015.
Although sharing the main narrative with the film, the book is uniquely written from the viewpoint of 13-year-old hunter, Oskari. Big Game takes the reader on a wild story of adventure and excitement. We experience the unfolding action through the eyes of our young hero, offering an original and equally thrilling perspective to the film’s storyline.
Sent into the cold wilderness on an ancient test of manhood, 13 year old Oskari is at the beginning of his adventure. He must survive armed only with a bow and arrow and prove himself a true hunter to his village, but most importantly his dad. However, things don’t quite go to plan when he stumbles upon an escape pod from a burning airliner: Air Force One. Terrorists have shot down the President of the United States and Oskari must use his skills and knowledge to keep the President safe. The boy hunter and the world’s most powerful man are suddenly the hunted, in a race against a deadly enemy.
Big Game hunting never got any bigger
