My Dragon and Me

written by: David Biedrzycki

A boy lists all the reasons he wants a pet dragon and describes how he would take care of it. Includes tips for selection (why you shouldn’t choose a three-headed dragon), discipline (what to do if your dragon misbehaves), and diet (why you should never give a dragon broccoli).





My Brother Is a Superhero

Written by David Solomons


Luke Parker was just your average comic book fan until his boring, teacher’s pet, helps-old-ladies-across-the-street brother Zack got turned into a superhero. Luke can’t believe the unfairness of it all—he’s the one with the encyclopedic knowledge of everything from Ant-Man to Wolverine! At least he can help Zack—aka Star Guy—with all the important parts of becoming a superhero, like using his newfound powers and deciding whether or not to wear a cape. But when Star Guy gets into super-size trouble, it’s up to Luke—and his intrepid neighbor, Lara—to rescue his big brother and, with a little luck, help him save the world.




Summer Ave Knowledge Tree’s Lego Club is a STEM inspired event that gives participants the opportunity to use their imaginations to build creations under the direction of a monthly theme, with a top secret sub-theme that is only revealed at the beginning of the build! This is a free event, we ask, but do not require, that you please let us know in advance that you are coming. All creations are displayed in store between Lego Clubs!
