Two years ago, libraries were invited to participate in an exciting event that allowed readers to suggest a plot or character development for the third book in a series, “Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold.” The book was published in the winter of 2013 and judges chose the entry of Sara Pauly.
Pauly was a seventh grade student at Central Middle School at the time of her entry and is now in ninth grade at Wayzata High School. Pauly suggested that character Mack Stein use his skills and position on a Florida newspaper to develop a key story line in the book. Ficticious characters appear in the new book with the names of both Pauly and her sponsoring librarian, Judith Rodgers, CMS media specialist.
A copy of “Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold” by Robert Jay is available in the CMS media center.
