Ransom Riggs wrote an extremely popular novel called Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.  Now, Tim Burton has turned it into what is sure to be an extremely popular movie.  It opens this weekend.

"When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is."

Our teen librarian Wendy is taking a field trip to Carmike Cinemas at Patton Creek to see the movie, and you can go too!  For FREE!  Our Movie Night Out will be Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 5 p.m.  If you're a teen, we will pay for your ticket.  But you must sign up because space is limited!   Register online or by phone (444-7826). 

I just LOVE Mike Austin picture books. Last year, I was particularly taken with Fire Engine No 9. It shadowed a fire engine and its crew through a busy day, telling the story using mostly sound words. This year, Austin follows up with Rescue Squad No 9, which tracks a boat that rescues a girl and her dog when their sailboat is caught in a storm. This new story also uses onomatopoeia and repetitive vocabulary to emphasize the story's action. And there is plenty of action. It's an intense rescue mission after all!
