About the Event
Story Bites Blue is an inclusive book club for children with an interest age of 8-11 years. We meet once a month to share a new book and explore it through games, crafts and talking. Everyone has a copy of the book in advance, and they can read or listen to it to get to know the story prior to the session. There is no reading during the session, just lots of fun exploring of the ideas in the book.
This month we’ll be meeting to explore another brilliant book! Booking is essential as we have limited spaces and the books are available the month before.
About the book:
The Stolen Songbird by Judith Eagle
It's 1950s London and Caro Monday and her friends have become embroiled in a dangerous art heist! When Caro Monday's mother disappears on one of her jaunts, she has no choice but to go and stay with a miserable woman that she's never met. Not only that but she's told that her beloved rabbit, His Nibs, is not allowed to go with her. Luckily, Caro's not one for following rules. With her rabbit in hiding, and her wild behaviour getting her into trouble as soon as she walks through the door, Caro is only going to find herself in deeper water. In the lining of her suitcase is a small but extraordinary painting of a thrush... a painting that some dangerous art thieves are hunting down!
Can Caro and her friends solve the mystery of the stolen songbird and find its owners before it's too late? Here ensues an exciting dash across London, with twists and turns as plentiful as the cobbled streets which Caro and her friends must navigate!
