Billie's book club book: Leonora Bolt Secret Inventor by Lucy Brandt
Join Billie for our THIRD ever youngun's book club. We loved our first and second books so much we've decided to crack on with another fabulous book.
Let's read something inspirational then meet to discuss our feelings and thoughts on the book with peers.
'Fizzing with fun, friendship and fabulous inventions!' - Maria Kuzniar
WARNING: EPIC INVENTIONS AND SECRET SOCIETIES AHEAD . . .
Leonora Bolt spends her days creating incredible inventions in her TOP SECRET laboratory, under the watchful eye of her terrifying uncle.
Everything changes one day when a strange boy washes up on an inflatable lobster and reveals that Uncle Luther has been stealing her inventions and selling them on the mainland. Leonora, armed with her most important inventions, must leave Crabby Island for the first time EVER to embark on an unforgettable journey that will test her brainpower to its limits.
With the help of an otter with a special skilll, a questionable cook and a singing sea captain, can Leonora dream up an invention that will defeat her evil uncle once and for all?
Violet Baudelaire meets Peanut Jones in this epic STEM-themed adventure about believing in your brainpower - and yourself!
Reading is a gift! Opening up a discussion about a book with a peer is something I believe encourages deeper understanding of ourselves, confidence and love of language. I believe reinforcing a shared passion for reading amongst children will give them tools to face obstacles and challenges later in life :)
Your copy of the book includes a free ‘Billie’s book club’ bookmark. Select 'local pickup' or 'local delivery' to avoid shipping charges!
If you want a copy of the book and entry into our book club meet up please add both items to your basket, we separated them out to include those readers who wanted to read but not join in the group, or wanted to join in the club but may already have the book!
We have two date options this time, to give the groups some space. We encourage parents to join the session - but a drop and go is totally fine if you need to dash. There will be staff on hand for parents to purchase coffees and teas!
