Well, here's another Secret Bonus Task that will get you TWO ENTRIES in the drawing. (Remember, the prize is a chance to hang out with a local author and get a signed copy of his or her book!)
All you have to do is come to a super awesome event at the bookstore. Here are the details:
What: Mac Barnett talks about his new book, THE CLOCK WITHOUT A FACE.
Where: A Great Good Place for Books
When: Saturday, June 26th at 7:00 p.m.
A little bit about the book:
We’ve buried 12 emerald-studded numbers—each handmade and one of a kind—in 12 holes across the United States. These treasures will belong to whoever digs them up first. The question: Where to dig? The only path to the answer: Solve the riddles of The Clock Without a Face!
THE BOOK The call comes in from the shadowy Ternky Tower: 13 robberies, one on each floor, all the way up to the penthouse, where obnoxious importer Bevel Ternky has been relieved of the numbers garlanding the legendary Emerald Khroniker, his priceless, ancient clock. Readers must conduct their own investigations, scouring detailed illustrations for hidden clues and knotty puzzles. All your answers can be found within this book: whodunit and how… and where the real numbers are buried now.
THE NUMBERS Twelve—and only twelve—emerald-bedecked integers sleep somewhere in this nation’s soil. If you can find them, they’re yours to keep—and only this book can tell you where they are. So read the story carefully, and examine the illustrations closely. The race is on!
Make sure you mention to a staff member that you're a Summer Reading Challenger. We'll see you there!
