3rd - 5th Grade Graphic Novel Club: Star Scouts

April 8th,
5:00pm to 5:30pm
Grades 3-5. Registration Required.

Do you love graphic novels? Are you in grades 3-5? Join us as we discuss Star Scouts by Mike Lawrence. Avani is the new kid in town, and she's not happy about it. Everyone in school thinks she's weird, especially the girls in her Flower Scouts troop. Is it so weird to think scouting should be about fun and adventure, not about makeovers and boys? But everything changes when Avani is abducted by a spunky alien named Mabel.

Pick up a copy of the book from Library Services to read prior to the date of the discussion.
