Announcing: A Comic Book Club for Kids!

Little Island is looking for kids who love comics to come and talk about books and share ideas. During each meeting of the book club we’ll have activities or events that go with what we read. Plus, kids who join the book club will get 20% off of the purchase of all of our book club titles. Our book club picks will be ideal for readers between the ages of 10 and 13, and if you want you can even bring your parents along for the fun! We’ll meet on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of every month, at 3pm. Kids can sign up in person at the store, by emailing mail@littleislandcomics.com, or by calling us at 416 901 7489.

February 4th: We’re launching the book club with Tintin! We’ll be looking at The Secret of the Unicorn, Red Rackham’s Treasure, and The Crab with the Golden Claws (these are the ones the movie’s based on), but anyone who wants to talk about any of Tintin’s adventures is welcome to come and share their ideas and opinions.

February 18th: We’ll read the brand-new fantasy adventure Spera, by Josh Tierney with Kyla Vanderklugt, Hwei, Emily Carroll and Olivier Pichard.

We’ll see you there!
