This month we creeped ourselves out by reading books full of werewolves, zombies and things that go bump in the night.
With Halloween in between our October meeting and our meeting in November we all chose stories featuring monsters or supernatural creatures of some kind. Some of us went with werewolves, others chose vampires. Some picked ghost stories and others went for monsters like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.
Most of the books we had were a little more serious, but the kids reported back that not all of them were scary! Some were about monsters like vampires just trying to live normal lives and some were downright silly. A couple of kids said they had to put down a book or two when they got just a little too spooky, but others stuck it out through the scary stuff and kept reading to the end. In general we found we all love some monsters in our books, whether they're scary or not. Two kids who took two different books from the same series swapped them while we were still talking
Since next month gets so busy for everyone and there's a shorter time than usual between this month's meeting and December's, we're going with graphic novels next! Browse our graphic novel sections in the Children's Room or at any of the branches or pick a comic book you have at home already. It can be a serialized comic, an original graphic novel, manga, or even a graphic novel adaptation of a chapter book. Pick one or more and join us on Tuesday, December 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the Children's Room!
