Are you looking for adventure in another place and time? Well, then you must read John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series and the spinoff, The Brotherband Chronicles.

These two series take place in a combination of Medieval and Viking Times. The main characters are orphans and misfits who are taken under the wings of some of the powerful men in their countries. The young men are involved in battles against bullies, strange creatures, invading armies and even pirates! Ranger's Apprentice starts with The Ruins of Gorlan. There are eleven books in this series. After you've read these you may want to read the first book in the spinoff series, The Outcasts.

If you've read these, did you have a favorite character or book?

William Joyce’s The Guardians of Childhood series delivers great fantasy and adventure to 3rd and 4th grade readers. Grab one while they are still on the shelf, because…… on Nov. 21, 2012, DreamWorks is releasing Rise of the Guardians, based on the books.

This 3D, computer- animated film will be great to see during the holidays, especially if you’ve read the books first.  Request one of the books now to read before you see the movie. 

Are you going to see the movie on the 21st?  If so, please let us know how you liked it!

On July 9th and July 18th, Arvada kids had a snortin' good time with Mudslinger and Digger at the Top Hogs show.

Called "the einsteins of porcine," Mudslinger and Digger wowed the crowd with a variety of tricks. The pigs played sports, made music, rode a skateboard and even put their toys away when they were finished playing with them!

Did you see Mudslinger and Digger at the Top Hogs show this summer? Tell us all about it!
