Kids to discuss ‘The Puzzling World of Winston Breen’ at library

By Staff | Dec 15, 2009

Youngsters in third through fifth grade are invited to join a book discussion group designed just for them. The group will meet on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010 at 10 a.m. at the Sanibel Public Library, located at 770 Dunlop Road.

The first book to be discussed is “The Puzzling World of Winston Breen” by Eric Berlin. This is a Sunshine State Book and is popular among this age group.

“Winston Breen is always solving puzzles. Then one day, Winston and his sister find strange puzzle pieces in an antique box and an adventure begins. Soon they are hunting for a long-lost treasure.”

The group is open to third through fifth graders and a parent. If you are interested in joining the group, contact Miss Barb at the Sanibel Public Library by calling 472-2483.
