Scary School

by Derek Taylor Kent

Join us as we discuss Scary School with author Derek Taylor Kent

You think your school’s scary? Get a load of these teachers: Ms. Fang, an 850-year-old vampire. Dr. Dragonbreath, who just might eat you before recess. Mr. Snakeskin-science class is so much more fun when it’s taught by someone who’s half zombie. Mrs. T-break the rules and spend your detention with a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex! Plus: Gargoyles, goblins, and Frankenstein’s monster on the loose. The world’s most frighteningly delicious school lunch.

Join the discussion via Zoom or watch LIVE on Facebook.
