It's Book Crushin' Time!!

Are you a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader? If so, then come hang out with us at the Westover Library, as we join forces to discuss how we CRUSHED...Gustav and Henri: Space Time Cake!, Vol. 1 

The Book Crushers Club meets in-person on the 2nd Wedneday of the month at 4:00pm. New members are always welcome. Oh! And just so you know, snacks and juice will be provided to help you power up! 

Book Description:

Opposites attract in this humorous graphic novel series about best friends, Gustav and Henri (short for Henrietta!). Meet Gustav and Henri. This is their book.
It's a bit about friendship and a lot about snacks (especially Nachos!).
They love doing normal things together, like:

  • finding a lost shuttlecock – IN SPACE!
  • returning an overdue library books – 100 YEARS AGO!
  • or making cakes – IN THE BATH! 
  • You know, completely boring things.

Join them for 100% of your recommended daily intake of adventure, escapades, and capers–all in one book!

With the visual appeal of Narwhal and Jelly, the irresistible humor of Dog Man and the value of Real Pigeons (with three stories in each volume), this is the perfect series for kids who enjoy comics, funny stories, and cartoons such as Phineas and Ferb.
