Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 8+. A brilliantly taut ghost story based on a blurb by a Year 6 boy from a Liverpool primary school who won a city-wide competition. A real page turner and a roller coaster ride that’s an excellent title for the reluctant, struggling or dyslexic reader of 9+ but particularly for those whose reading age is nearer 8+. Alan Gibbons has won numerous awards including the Blue Peter award and has been shortlisted for the most prestigious book award, the Carnegie Medal.

A Dyslexia Friendly title.

Synopsis

The Dying Photo by Alan Gibbons

Jamie’s shopping with his parents in Liverpool when a photographer offers to take a picture. The camera flashes. Both Jamie’s parents and the photographer have gone, and all that’s left is a negative fluttering to the ground. On it – Jamie’s parents. And they’re screaming. Can Jamie discover what’s happened?

LoveReading4Kids is a modern and creative way of emphasising the value and importance of books in this digital age #booksforlife

Amrit Bunet – Teen

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
