    The Book Factor was a competition for schoolchildren across Liverpool. As part of this, they were asked to come up with an idea for a story and a front cover. The Dying Photo is the winning entry. One student's concept was taken on by Alan Gibbons and the story revolves around a mysterious camera. A strange man takes a photo of Jimmy's family, but as the camera flashes, Jimmy's parents vanish. The only clue to their whereabouts is a picture of his mum and dad screaming... Nobody believes Jimmy when he says what happened. Is he going mad? And will he get his parents back?

    Lady Friday is here! The race is on to find the secret of the Middle House. The fifth instalment in Garth Nix's bestselling fantasy series, The Keys to the Kingdom. Arthur Penhaligon's adventures in the House get ever more perilous as the week unfolds. On the fifth day, there was fear! Four of the seven Trustees have been defeated and their Keys taken, but for Arthur, the week is still getting worse. Suzy Blue and Fred Initial Numbers Gold have been captured by the Piper, and his New Nithling army still controls most of the Great Maze. Superior Saturday is causing trouble wherever she can, including turning off all the elevators in the House and blocking the Front Door. Arthur can't even find out what is happening back home. All he knows is that Leaf isn't on earth any more. She's missing and so are hundreds of other people who were transferred from regular hospitals to a private institution run by a 'Doctor Friday'. From there they have been taken somewhere else in the Secondary Realms, for Lady Friday's own horrible purposes. Amid all this trouble, Arthur's mother is also missing, and he must weigh up an offer from Lady Friday that is either a cunning trap for the Rightful Heir or a golden opportunity he must seize -- before Superior Saturday or the Piper beats him to it.
