Books & Popcorn- The Nixie's Song
During the school year we have a special monthly program called "Books & Popcorn". Students in grades 3-5 are invited to join the enthusiastic book discussion of a new book each month. In addition, the popcorn we serve is pretty darn good!
September's book choice is called The Nixie's Song by Tony DiTerlizzi. It is the first book in the "Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles" series. In The Nixie's Song Nick is learning to live with a new stepsister who is not only weird, but has also taken over his bedroom so that he has to share with his older brother. Laurie (Nick's stepsister) knows everything about faeries and brings Nick (who highly doubts that faeries even exist) on an adventure to find out if they are living near their house. Later that day Nick is horrified to discover the ugliest and strangest looking creature in his backyard. Laurie, of course, knows right away that she is a Nixie and decides to help her. Ok...I'm not giving anything else away. Read the book and come to our book discussion! You will definitely be hooked on the series and hungry for more!
See you on September 17th from 6:30-7:30 for Books & Popcorn. Register today and come in to the Youth Services "Ask Me" Desk to pick up a copy of the book.
