For the Love of Gelo!
I love a good sci-fi book. Especially one with alien encounters and epic battles. But what I love even more than that is a great sci-fi book. What makes it great? Humor and an unusual twist. Space Rocks! by Tom O'Donnell can officially be classified as great. The narrator is Chorkle, a five-eyed Xotonian who inhabits an asteroid called Gelo. It has been invaded by four Earth children and their delicious Feeney's Original Astronaut Ice Cream Bars. Chorkle couldn't resist! Now it has to play alien babysitter and take on the role of interspecies diplomat. Chorkle is hilarious! Plus there are vicious thyss-cats lurking in the asteroid's cavern system and hostile aliens headed their way. See? This book has everything. It even has a sequel! For the Love of Gelo! (That's the title, not just me being enthusastic.) Find both in the Kid Zone at Hoover Public Library.
Falling for Fall
November 4, 2014 is an important day at Hoover Public Library. First, it's Election Day, and the library is a polling place. Second, we'll be Falling for Fall in the Kid Zone at 6:30 p.m. Our November family night event features autumn stories and crafts. You don't have to make a reservation, but you may want to come a little early. Parking could be tricky.
