MMS April Book Club Choices!
Good day dear readers! What a month we have had! Most people are getting slammed by snow (I am watching the snow fall as I type), and this winter has been anything but normal. This means it is perfect weather to sit and curl up with some great reads! We are journeying through some fun adventures right now, but why stop? It is time to roll out the new reads and prepare for a new adventure next month!
Adults are going to be reading “The Little Old Lady Who Broke All The Rules” by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg:
“79-year-old Martha Anderson dreams of escaping her care home and robbing a bank. She has no intention of spending the rest of her days in an armchair and is determined to fund her way to a much more exciting life-style. Along with her four oldest friends – otherwise known as the League of Pensioners – Martha decides to rebel against all of the rules imposed upon them. Together, they cause an uproar with their antics: protesting against early bedtimes and plastic meals. As the elderly friends become more daring, their activities escalate and they come up with a cunning plan to break out of the care home and land themselves in a far more attractive Stockholm establishment. With the aid of their Zimmer frames, they resolve to stand up for old aged pensioners everywhere – Robin Hood style. And that’s when the adventure really takes off . .”
Kids are going to be reading “The Black Stallion” by Walter Farley:
“Published originally in 1941, this book is about a young boy, Alec Ramsay who finds a wild black stallion at a small Arabian port on the Red Sea. Between the black stallion and young boy, a strange understanding grew that you lead them through untold dangers as they journeyed to America. Nor could Alec understand that his adventures with the black stallion would capture the interest of an entire nation.”
