Chapter Chatter Book Club

Monday, December 18th at 4:30 pm

This month we will discuss the first book in Max Brallier’s The Last Kids on Earth series. Ever since the monster apocalypse hit town, average thirteen-year-old Jack Sullivan has been living in his tree house, which he's armed to the teeth with catapults and a moat. Now Jack has assembled a team to take on the eerily intelligent monster known as Blarg. Will they succeed in their mission? Children in grades 2-5 are invited to the library to discuss the book and create their own personal monster apocalypse survival guides. Participants should have read the book before the meeting and bring the book with them; copies will be available at the library.
