Weybridge Chatterbooks

Our last meeting at the beginning of May was a very lively one. We had chosen The Lost Magician by Piers Torday as our book to read for April.

There were mixed reviews for this book. The group was split around who enjoyed it and who didn't. We did agree that it was a little like some other stories that we had read in the past. Some of us did enjoy the magic element though, whilst others thought that the time that it was set in, just after the war, was quite interesting.

We made some posters for our library display, with some of the memorable sayings from the book and some of the mythical creatures that were part of the story. #LostMagician

Our next book is The Boy Who Flew by Fleur Hitchcock. It's about a boy called Athan Wilde and his adventure with a flying machine. It's a proper murder mystery!!! Everyone is looking forward to  reading this as it promises to be an exciting and interesting adventure for us all.

Woking Library April 2019

This month we read 'Below Zero' by Dan Smith

Twelve-year-old Zak is plane-wrecked on an abandoned research outpost in the Antarctic with his sister and parents. Here, a series of nightmarish occurrences and bizarre visions suggest a link to something else - a presence beneath the ice - which only Zak can understand ...Not one for the faint hearted, especially if you suffer from arachnophobia!
This book was well liked by the group.
We designed a poster for Antarctica, and worked out what things we should take for our trip to the frozen south pole. 
The group then did a 'treasure hunt' for clues from the book around the library. They are getting very good at this now and were able to find the clues and work out the hidden word much too quickly!
