All four Wednesdays in November will be filled with laughter and learning as Regina leads dramatic readings of humorous books for middle-graders. On November 18 at 5:00 p.m., Regina shares an excerpt from "Cold Cereal" by Adam Rex, a book that blends magic and mischief, causing all kinds of hilarious confusion. Regina's follow-up discussion encourages listeners to examine the combination of fantasy and reality, which the author handles with great humor. Kids will find themselves asking just what the folks at Goodco Cereal Company are up to when strange things start to happen to main characters as well as imagined creatures and beings. Keep up with the conversation at this Bank Street Book Store event for kids from eight to 12 years old.
