PLG Young Readers Book Group discusses The House with a Clock in Its Walls
Led by Greenlight marketing coordinator Stephanie, our young readers book group in PLG 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 October, the group discusses John Bellairs’ gothic classic, The House with a Clock in Its Walls. When Lewis Barnavelt, an orphan, comes to stay with his uncle Jonathan, he expects to meet an ordinary person. But he is wrong. Uncle Jonathan and his next-door neighbor, Mrs. Zimmermann, are both witches! Lewis is thrilled. At first, watchng magic is enough. Then Lewis experiments with magic himself, leading to the discovery of a timepiece in the walls of the house--a clock that could obliterate humankind. And only the Barnavelts can stop it!
