Hello, young readers!
Halloween is over, candy is being consumed, and afternoons are turning chilly. We have had a busy year of books, distance learning, and many different adventures. While November is just beginning, there are only a few weeks until Thanksgiving break! Are you excited about the break?
This month, we are reading Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. I have been told that this book contains a lot of humor! I love a good book with humor in it. With December right around the corner, we are going to announce that book – and it’s one that you are going to really love. We have read this one before, but it is worth reading again. The Castle In The Attic is an adventure in itself! Are you ready to have some fun!? I am!
One of the classic fantastical adventures of all time!
William has just received the best present of his life—an old, real-looking stone and wooden model of a castle, with a drawbridge, a moat, and a fingerhigh knight to guard the gates. It’s the mysterious castle his housekeeper has told him about, and even though William is sad she’s leaving, now the castle is his! William can’t wait to play with the castle—he’s certain there’s something magical about it. And sure enough, when he picks up the tiny silver knight, it comes alive in his hand! Sir Simon tells William a mighty story of wild sorcery, wizards, and magic. And suddenly William is off on a fantastic quest to another land and another time—where a fiery dragon and an evil wizard are waiting to do battle.
