Flummox: How to Make a Pet Monster 2
Saturday 5 June at 1pm
Frankston Library

Have you ever wanted a pet monster?
If you are like me, the answer is NO, because you think monsters don't exist.
If you are like Willow, the answer is YES DEFINITELY.

Willow and I found an ancient spell book called the BIGGE BOKE of fetching monsters, which shows you how to make REAL MONSTERS. We made HODGEPODGE, who's a bit furry and a bit stinky. He's my best friend.

Willow wants to make a best friend, but I'm worried. Now that I know monsters are REAL, what if this new one is REALLY dangerous?

The Erasure Initiative
Saturday 5 June at 2pm
Frankston Library

A girl wakes up on a self-driving bus. She has no memory of how she got there or who she is. Her nametag reads CECILY. The six other people on the bus are just like her: no memories, only nametags. There's a screen on each seatback that gives them instructions. A series of tests begin, with simulations projected onto the front window of the bus. The passengers must each choose an outcome; majority wins. But as the testing progresses, deadly secrets are revealed, and the stakes get higher and higher. Soon Cecily is no longer just fighting for her freedom - she's fighting for her life.
