Downtown Klamath County Library
Let’s join in the Battle of the Books!
The Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a statewide reading program where students read from the organization’s list of books and then compete in trivia “battles” to prove their comprehension of the book’s content. The Klamath County Library is helping students in 3rd through 5th grade prepare for their schools’ participation in the Battle of the Books with a mini book club centering on OBOB titles.
We’re meeting Monday, July 31st at 1 pm to discuss Masterpiece, an art-theft mystery written by Elise Broach and illustrated by Kelly Murphy.
Masterpiece tells the story of an unlikely friendship between 11-year-old James and a beetle named Marvin. James gets a pen-and-ink set for his birthday, and Marvin discovers he can scratch out tiny, impossibly intricate pictures with his forelegs and the ink from the calligraphy set. But James is given the credit for the incredible drawings, and both boy and beetle find themselves swept up into a scheme to recover a stolen drawing by legendary printmaker Albrecht Dürer…
