We'll be discussing Monstrous Devices by Damien Love.

 On a winter’’s day in a British town, twelve-year-old Alex receives a package in the mail: an old tin robot from his grandfather. “This one is special” says the enclosed note, and when strange events start occurring around him, Alex suspects this small toy is more than special; it might be deadly.

Right as things get out of hand, Alex’’s grandfather arrives, pulling him away from an attack —and his otherwise humdrum world of friends, bullies, and homework —and into the macabre magic of an ancient family feud. Together, the duo flees across snowy Europe, unraveling the riddle of the little robot while trying to outwit relentless assassins of the human and mechanical kind….

You've asked and we've heard you! Hicklebee's has launched a book club for readers between the ages of 9 and 12, led by kidlit aficionados Kathy Ellen Davis and Suzi Hough.  If you are a middle grader and MAD ABOUT BOOKS, joins us on the second Monday of each month to discuss our featured book and anything else we've read that we loved.  MAB members will receive a 20% discount on titles chosen for discussion and occasional sneak peeks at upcoming titles.
