    "The Trouble with Chickens: A J. J. Tully Mystery" by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Kevin Cornell | J.J.

Driven by the promise of a cheeseburger, J.J. begins to track down clues. Is Vince the Funnel hiding something? Are there dark forces at work—or is J.J. not smelling the evidence that’s right in front of him. This is a parent and child book group and reservations are needed.

Ravi's family just moved to America from India, and he's finding it pretty hard to figure out where he fits in. Joe and Ravi don't think they have anything in common -- but soon enough they have a common enemy (the biggest bully in their class) and a common mission: to take control of their lives over the course of a single crazy week. For students in 4th & 5th grade. Registration is not required but appreciated. Registration is available online or please call the children's department at 781-741-1405, ext. 1403.
