PLG Young Readers Book Group discusses Ronia the Robber’s Daughter

Led by Greenlight bookseller Wynne, our young readers book group in Prospect Lefferts Garden is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For January, the group discusses Ronia the Robber’s Daughter, a thrilling adventure from Astrid Lindgren, author of Pippi Longstocking, and a former Greenlight staff pick! On the night Ronia was born, a thunderstorm raged over the mountain, but in Matt's castle and among his band of robbers there was only joy - for Matt now had a spirited little black-haired daughter. Soon Ronia learns to dance and yell with the robbers, but it is alone in the forest that she feels truly at home. Then one day Ronia meets Birk, the son of Matt's arch-enemy. Soon after Ronia and Birk become friends the worst quarrel ever between the rival bands erupts, and Ronia and Berk are right in the middle.

Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
