Page Turners Read The Wells Bequest for May


The Page Turners book discussion group for Tweens in grades 6-8 reads The Wells Bequest by Polly Shulman.  Join Miss Kerri at 2:30 on May 8th for a snack, discussion and activity. Copies of the book are available in the Teen area or Young Readers' Room. 

About the Book
Leo never imagined that time travel might really be possible, or that the objects in H. G. Wells’ science fiction novels might actually exist. But then a miniature time machine appears in Leo’s bedroom, and he recognizes one of the tiny riders: himself! His search for the time machine and his fate leads him to the New-York Circulating Material Repository, a magical library that lends out objects instead of books. Hidden away in the Repository basement is the Wells Bequest, a secret collection of powerful objects straight out of classic science fiction novels: robots, rockets, submarines, a shrink ray—and one very famous time machine. And when Leo’s adventure of a lifetime suddenly turns deadly, he must attempt a journey to 1895 to warn real-life scientist Nikola Tesla about a dangerous invention. A race for time is on!
