LLAGNY’s Graphic Novel Book Group will be hosted via Zoom account on Thursday, September 24th at 12:00 PM. We will discuss: Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce.
When Tom’s brother gets sick, he’s shipped off to spend what he’s sure will be a boring summer with his aunt and uncle in the country. But then Tom hears the old grandfather clock in the hall chime thirteen times, and he’s transported back to an old garden where he meets a young, lonely girl named Hatty.
Tom returns to the garden every night to have adventures with Hatty, who mysteriously grows a little older with each visit. As the summer comes to an end, Tom realizes he wants to stay in the garden with Hatty forever.
