Page Turners Read The Grimm Legacy for January


The Page Turners book discussion group for tweens in grades 5-7 is reading Polly Shulman's The Grimm Legacy for their January 10th meeting at 2:30. Bus transportation from LMS to the library is available. Pick up your copy of The Grimm Legacy in the Teen Department or in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
Is there a better antidote to a lonely teen existence than a dose of fairy-tale magic? Feeling left out from her stepfamily at home and from her classmates at her new school, Elizabeth is delighted when she gets a job at the New York Circulating Material Repository, a library that loans objects of historical value. Among the stacks lay Marie Antoinette’s wig, Abraham Lincoln’s hat, Sleeping Beauty’s spindle, and the evil mirror from Snow White.

How would you react if you found out that fairy tale magic was real, and that your favorite heroes and villains are not mythical, but historical figures? What would you do to protect that ancient magic from a mysterious new threat?

When magical objects start to disappear from the Grimm Collection, Elizabeth and her new friends must catch the thief in order to prove their innocence.

December Meeting Wrap-Up: The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien.

Some readers were new to Middle-earth, and others knew the place like the back of their hand. We all enjoyed reading and re-reading The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien.

The Page Turners met just one day before the premiere of the new movie, and we had plenty of time to spruce up our Christmas trees with our hand-made Hobbit door ornaments! Our in-depth discussion covered how Bilbo was transformed by his journey, different categories of fantasy books, and whether we would rather be a Hobbit, a Wizard, a Dwarf, or an Elf. We also relived our favorite moments and pointed out our favorite illustrations by the great Alan Lee.
