Boughs of Holly

It's beginning to look a lot like Yuletide! Hello, I'm Felix Navidad, and I'll be appearing in the Spiral a few days from now to start off the Yuletide Festival. We hold the Yuletide Festival every year and this year it's going to be spectacular!

There will be decorations in the Wizard City Commons, and I'll be taking up my usual post at the fountain in the Wizard City Shopping District. I have many Yuletide themed items for sale, and you'll find many more will be arriving in the Crown Shop throughout the month of December, so keep checking back for new items!

We'll also be holding a special event later in the month with sales, promotions, giveaways and lots of exciting surprises. Keep reading the newsletter for more details about Plant-a-palooza, Harold's Book of the Month and much much more!

Harold Argleston's Book of the Month

  Harold Argleston, LibrarianThis is the November 2011 installment of my Book of the Month Club. These books have been suggested by a fellow Librarian from Earth, her name is Kit Ward-Crixell and she is a librarian in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.

Our chosen book this month is Witch Week by Diana Wynne Jones. It is the story of a magical school - but in a world where witches and wizards are illegal! When someone at Larwood House school starts doing magic, everyone is determined to figure out who it is - while avoiding attracting the attention of the scary Inquisitors. Pretty soon, though, there's magic all over the place, and it's up to students Nan and Estelle to get the school out of the mess it's in.

Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!
