Challengers Saturday Read-Along: JELLABY

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Start Time: 12:00AM    End Time: 01:00PM

Challengers is pleased to present our SATURDAY READ-ALONG program for younger readers: ChallengeJuniors! On the last Saturday of each month, Challengers will play in-store a specially constructed full-cast recording of a graphic novel, while younger readers follow along in their own copies of the book.

Our February ChallengeJuniors book is Kean Soo's JELLABY. Here's how publisher Hyperion describes the book:

"So, you're in the woods in the middle of the night, and a huge purple monster tries to eat your flashlight. What do you do? Meet Portia Bennett, who is almost certainly braver than you are - she brings the monster home and offers him a tuna sandwich. And just like that, Portia has a new (secret) best friend. Life with Jellaby is exciting, but Portia's purple friend has secrets of his own. Convinced that the sweet, silent monster is lost, Portia decides to help him find his home. But their only clue is a photograph of a mysterious door in a nearby city. How can a ten-year-old girl and a purple creature of unknown origin make their way into Toronto all by themselves?"

On February 27th at noon, we'll be playing the ChallengeJuniors Cast Recording of JELLABY in-store. We'll be selling copies of JELLABY through (and after) the 27th, and suggest that each participant have a copy with which to read-along.

JELLABY is intended for readers age 10 and up, and Challengers recommends that children be accompanied by an adult.
