Join us at the Norton Public Library for tasty snacks and fairytale mayhem!  

The Robe of Skulls

"Fire up your cauldron for an exuberant, fast-moving, wildly entertaining tale with a cast of characters who are good, bad, and very, very ugly. High above the mountain village of Fracture, trouble is brewing. The sorceress Lady Lamorna wants a skull-studded gown of deep black velvet, but her treasure chest is empty of gold. That doesn't stop her, however--from kidnapping, blackmailing, and using a little magic to get what she needs. Will her plans be foiled by the heroic Gracie Gillypot, two chatty bats, a gallant (if scruffy) prince, the wickedest stepsister ever, a troll with a grudge, and some very ancient crones?"

This parent & child book club is for kids in grades 3-7 (or so) and their grown-ups on the last Monday of each month. Please register at the library and let us know about any food allergies or dietary restrictions, since we always have snacks!

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

 

A luminous retelling of the Snow Queen, this is the story of unlikely heroine Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard who doesn't believe in anything that can't be proven by science. She and her sister Alice are still grieving for their dead mother when their father takes a job in a strange museum in a city where it always snows. On her very first day in the museum Ophelia discovers a boy locked away in a long forgotten room. He is a prisoner of Her Majesty, the Snow Queen. And he has been waiting for Ophelia's help. As Ophelia embarks on an incredible journey to rescue the boy everything that she believes will be tested. Along the way she learns more and more about the boy's own remarkable journey to reach her and save the world. A story within a story, this a modern day fairytale about the power of friendship, courage and love, and never ever giving up.

This parent & child book club is for kids in grades 3-7 (or so) and their grown-ups on the last Monday of each month--except for the Nov/Dec meeting, which meets on December 8 in an effort to avoid conflicting with anyone's holidays! Please register at the library and let us know about any food allergies or dietary restrictions, since we always have snacks!
