A busy week of Book Club gatherings | King's Hall School Taunton

right and early on Tuesday morning, a group of enthusiastic readers met in the library to chat about the two books that they had read over the summer holidays, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr, as they feasted on a delicious spread of Danish pastries and fruit juice. It was, we all agreed, the very best way to start the day!

On Thursday it was the turn of the Year 3 Book Club who had been reading the hilarious Adventures of Harry Stevenson by Ali Pye. This story features an intrepid yet rather accident-prone guinea pig named Harry who gets up to all sorts of mischief. We all had lots of fun imagining other funny adventures that Harry could get up to and ideas included travelling to the library to explore all of the exciting books there, inadvertently ending up on an aeroplane headed for the beach and mistakenly tumbling into the basket of a hot air balloon just before take-off! A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all.

Finally, Year 5 and 6 Book Club met on Thursday afternoon to discuss Abi Elphinstone’s latest novel, the gripping fantasy adventure Rumblestar. Many of us remembered meeting Abi when she visited King’s Hall in 2018. We really enjoyed Abi’s online video masterclass which gave us tips for creating our own fantasy stories, as well as giving us insight into Abi’s writing and the inspiration behind her stories
