May 2012 Book of the Month.
The thrills and spills of Kip's movie adventure in Night on Terror Island were an experience of a lifetime but they have left their mark on him, unlike his friend Beth who despite also being shaken and stirred from their last adventure persuades Kip that a quick visit into the latest movie release - Spy another Day - is just what they need on a dismal November day and much better than doing homework. With the help of the projectionist at the local cinema who has an incredible machine called the Lazarus Enigma, Beth and Kip get their chance. But what should have proved a simple visit ends in disaster when Kip and Beth are separated and find themselves in different parts of the same film. Can they find their way through all the dangers of a spy movie and defeat the evil genius, Doctor Leo Kasabian, before the final credits roll and they are trapped there ...forever? A must-have for any young film fanatic!
Kip is reluctant to allow Mr Lazarus to send him into another movie - but Beth has other ideas, particularly when she discovers The Paramount Picture Palace is planning to show the latest film in the Jason Corder series, 'Spy Another Day'. Its star, Daniel Crag, has always been Beth's favourite screen actor. When Mr Lazarus asks her to obtain Corder's ID card, she agrees to go in and Kip feels duty-bound to accompany her.
From the author of the much-acclaimed Alec Devlin and Sebastian Darke series.
