The last page! The silver bowl by Diane Stanley



Today’s Last Page Entry
features Children’s Librarian Kari Ann St.Jean
(“the last page” is a “new” feature on our blog, featuring all the new cool stuff we have just read)


Q. Good Morning Kari Ann.  Is it true you just finished the last page of some really great book? Please share!

A.  Yes of course!  I just finished the last page of this amazing book, The Silver Bowl, by Diane Stanley.  



Q.  The Silver Bowl!  Tell us about it.

A. Sure.

It’s about this super poor girl named Molly who is sent by her father to work as a scullery maid at the castle………………….because of the PLAGUE lots of servants have died…………and she’s only seven when she’s sent there.  Her mother, is “mad” – like crazy mad – because she has these visions.  Well anyway, Molly has visions too.

Q.  Is the book long?

A.  Not really.

It’s fantasy and is 302 pages or so. But wait, so she gets to polish the silver because she’s really good with her hands.  And she has these visions when she polishes the silver bowl.  Something bad is going to happen to the king!

Q. What was the best part?

A. The best part is when she is INSIDE THE BOWL.  That part is so cool.  She has to fight the curses!

Q. So now that you’ve read the last page, what are you going to read next?

A. Well, I can’t decide if I should read the next book The cup and the Crown or this different book called Goblin Secrets.

I guess you will just have to wait until the next Last Page…….

OR






What do you think? Do you think Kari Ann will read
The cup and the crown or Goblin secrets?
I guess we will have to wait and see.

If you want to read the Silver Bowl – look for it at the Avon Library in the Middle Reader section.
