The Nelson Public Library’s summer reading club had a special visit from Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall for its wrap up party on Wednesday.

Mungall read her “all time favourite book” The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch to a group of excited kids.

The kids were taken in by the way Mungall added the voices of the dragon and Prince Robert to the story.

Chief librarian June Stockdale presented her with The Library Book and commented on her great storytelling.

The kids were able to share their favourite part of the story once Mungall finished reading, and she told the kids her favourite part is the end — in which she realized she can do better than Prince Robert.
