First in Series Book Club
For middle grade readers (approximately grade 4 to grade 6), this group meets the last Wednesday of each month to discuss the launch of a new series. We will only read the first in each series as a group, but we’ll make time here and there for follow-up discussions with kids who go on to explore the rest of the series.
The first selection we’ll read and discuss will be the newest from Brandon Mull, author of the Fablehaven series, among other favorites.

Spirit Animals #1: Wild Born
Enter the world of Erdas, where every child who comes of age must discover if they have a spirit animal, a rare bond between human and beast that bestows great powers to both. A dark force has risen from distant and long-forgotten lands, and has begun an onslaught that will ravage the world. Now the fate of Erdas has fallen on the shoulders of four young strangers.
A mutli-platform series (in the vein of 39 clues), these books can be enjoyed on their own or with the addition of a role-playing game. 202 pages. Target age: 8-12.
Retail price: $12.99
Spellbound price: $10.39 (through Jan. 29th)
