Children's Fiction Reviews
Each month, we post a staff member's brief review of a children's fiction title available at the Library!
This month, the featured title is When Did You See Her Last? by Lemony Snicket. Lots of humour, some mystery, and a bit of craziness all make for a fun story for you to enjoy!
And in case you missed it, last month's title was Offside by Tom Palmer, an exciting book about soccer, kidnapping, and the darker side of big-time sports!
