Superior Saturday by Garth Nix (Scholastic Prees, 2008) is a fantasy novel about a magical boy named Arther who lives in the magical House, a world where beasts reign and you either go up or straight down. Furious that the Trustees won’t just hand over their Keys, he pushes onward and upward. Because his house, his school and his whole town have probably been nuked, he has no choice but to continue his siege against the Trustees. But he often wonders what his life would be like if he had just given up his Keys. (Liam in grade eight)

Grim Tuesday is part of The Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix. The novel’s conflict concerns Arthur, who is trying to live a normal life despite having been chosen to be the Rightful Heir of the House. In between trying to be normal and defeating the Morrow Days who are criminals, he also has to protect his friends and family. With new problems around every corner, Arthur’s life may never be normal again. (Liam in grade eight)

Lady Friday by Garth Nix (Scholastic, 2007) is the fifth book in the entertaining fantasy series: The Keys to the Kingdom. The main character, Arthur Penthaligon, is the rightful heir to the keys to the kingdom and to the will of the Architect. This is not because of his bloodline or because of a prophecy but simply because he was at the right place at the right time. Now he has to find the fifth key, a key that will be able to take him anywhere he has been that has a reflective surface.

But the trustees won’t freely give away their keys. So far, Arthur has defeated Mister Monday, Grim Tuesday, Lady Wednesday, and Sir Thursday. And now Lady Friday abdicates her position as the fifth trustee and leaves the key in her scriptorium. She gives permission for the Piper, Superior Saturday, and Arthur to all do their best to claim the fifth key. But is she setting a trap? If you want to find out, read this spellbinding story and then the rest of this great series from Australia. (grade 7)
