Caribbean Adventure Series Author to visit the Montserrat Public Library
Author of the Caribbean Adventure Series for children Carol Mitchell will visit the Montserrat Public Library this Saturday, August 10, 2013 for Children’s Reading Hour.
Librarian Sonja Smith says the visit by the children’s author is another way the Public Library is working to make books come alive to readers. “We look forward to Mrs Mitchell’s visit and encourage the children to come out and enjoy listening to the stories.”
Carol hails from the island of St. Kitts where she was inspired to write stories which captured her love for the Caribbean and also history. Mitchell’s landmark historical fantasy series, Caribbean Adventure Series, chronicles the adventures of three children and a monkey who have exciting, magical adventures in the Caribbean. The series, aimed at children 7-10 years old, has been hailed as both entertaining and educational.
In Fury on Soufriere Hills, the boys are taken back in time to Montserrat when Caribs still lived there. Fury includes two of the characters that we got to know in the series, and introduces Frankie, a young boy from Montserrat who longs to return to his beloved home.
Find out more about the author on Saturday. Parents are encouraged to come along with their children for the reading. Learn more about the books in the series online.
