Book Pirates OnlineTuesday December 1, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Book Pirates is still online! Join us for December's choice, The Explorers: Door in the Alley by Adrienne Kress. Featuring a mysterious society, a secretive past, and a pig in a teeny hat, this is the first book in the series.
Rational and risk-averse Sebastian is challenged by the director of the madcap Explorers Society to do something he shouldn't: steal a box. The contents of the box relate in some way to Evie, an orphan who lives at a school but regularly dines with a very boring couple known as the Andersons. One night, two dangerous men burst into the Andersons' house in pursuit of a key. The two children find themselves caught up in a perilous chase involving Evie's grandfather and a group of explorers known as the Filipendulous Five. This is a rollicking read, full of derring-do and old-fashioned villainy. A narrator inserts sly and humorous comments alongside amusing footnotes. (School Library Journal)
