A striking cover featuring The Forbidden Garden, and composed of two panels of Laika experiencing both danger and hope in the Forbidden Zone. The wild animals in the Forbidden Zone threaten Laika’s life every time she ventures there now, but the discovery of a water source means she can now water her plants freely and has taken the first step of freedom away from Gladvis’s blackmail. All the while she has to dodge the police because it is illegal for her to be in the Forbidden Zone, and their patrols are getting more frequent now.

In “Alice in a Strange Land”, Alice has briefly succumbed to brainwashing and cannot remember who she is. She soon regains control, but is now threatened with drowning. More brainwashing victims are freed in Children of Edenford after Patti turns on the sprinklers because tears seem to be the antidote to the brainwashing. But then they go the other way with rioting, and are then back under Miss Goodfellow’s control – in spades.

In The Four-Footed Friends it’s Riley’s birthday, but there is no let-up from Mrs Marshall and her bizarre ideas about cleanliness and keeping Winston and Riley apart for snobby reasons. They defy her once more by striking out together. But how long will it last?

Another party gets ruined in “I’ll Make Up for Mary”. The youth club manager organiser arranges a party. But bad Beryl and her toughs wreck everything and poor Ann gets blamed by her parents.
