Movie Night Success!

25 students enjoyed 'A Monster Calls' on Thursday 29th June. The film was an emotional rollercoaster. One student said "Oh no...i might dream about that monster tree, tonight." (hopefully, he slept peacefully). Also, one student said "the film had personally touched him." It was difficult to stifle back the tears as the film drew to an end.

Look out for the next Movie Night...'may the force be with you'!

'A Monster Calls' by Patrick Ness is available in the LL to borrow:

This is an extraordinarily moving novel about coming to terms with loss. The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming...The monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Costa Award winner Patrick Ness spins a tale from the final idea of much-loved Carnegie Medal winner Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Darkly mischievous and painfully funny, 'A Monster Calls' is an extraordinarily moving novel of coming to terms with loss from two of our finest writers for young adults.
