Junior Book Club

Tuesday, November 17 at 4 PM

Virtual book club is back! In this book club for youth in grades 3 through 5, participants will read “The Sasquatch Escape” by Suzanne Selfors before our meeting where we’ll discuss everything we read, play games, and do a little crafting. The book, discussion questions, and crafting/activity materials will be provided in a take-home kit prior to November 17. Registration is required.

Book summary: When Ben Silverstein is sent to the rundown town of Buttonville to spend the summer with his grandfather, he's certain it will be the most boring vacation ever. That is, until his grandfather's cat brings home what looks like…a baby dragon?

Amazed, Ben enlists the help of Pearl Petal, a local girl with an eye for adventure. They take the wounded dragon to the only veterinarian's office in town–Dr. Woo's Worm Hospital. But, Dr. Woo's isn't a worm hospital at all–it's actually a secret hospital for imaginary creatures!

After Ben accidentally leaves the hospital's front door unlocked, a rather large, rather stinky, and very hairy beast escapes into Buttonville. Ben and Pearl are tasked with retrieving the runaway creature. What started out as an ordinary summer soon becomes the story of a lifetime.
