Nine is an orphan pickpocket determined to escape her life in the Nest of a Thousand Treasures. When she steals a house-shaped ornament from a mysterious woman’s purse, she knocks on its tiny door and watches it grow into a huge, higgledy-piggeldy house. Inside she finds a host of magical and brilliantly funny characters, including Flabberghast – a young wizard who’s particularly competitive at hopscotch – and a hideous troll housekeeper who’s emotionally attached to his feather duster. They have been placed under an extraordinary spell, which they are desperate for Nine to break – and if she can, maybe they can offer her a new life in return…
Please note any accommodation requests in the Special Needs section of the registration form.
We encourage adults to remain in the library but to allow their tween/teen to attend the program alone – only if both are comfortable. If an adult must be present, they must sit with the tween/teen.
If you have any questions, please contact Julia Manning at email@example.com.
