Let’s Go, Pegasus! is based on a Greek myth.  Written for young children, the book is full of magic and adventures that capture the imagination. You cannot put it down until the last page has been turned. 

Perseus, the main character, has the difficult task of fighting Medusa for her head.  He has been told by several townspeople that if you look Medusa in the eyes, she will turn you into stone. 

This is a picture book that is easy to read, with questions at the bottom of the page to involve kids in Perseus' life or death decisions.

The Washington Highlands High Noon Book Club
had a wonderful discussion this month, talking about
the book "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult.  
The book was about a family who had two children
and the eldest became sick with cancer.  The Parents
made the decision to have another child who would help
save the life of the sick daughter.  The youngest daughter
was used for more than 11 years giving blood, giving bone
marrow, and ultimately to give a kidney.  She refused.  
Read the book to see what happens.

On Monday November 1, 2010 we will be reading and discussing
Joyce Meyer's "Any Minute".  
Come join in on our lively discussion.
