Book Birthday Bash: Spin the Golden Light Bulb
Happy Book Birthday to SPIN THE GOLDEN LIGHT BULB!
Thank you so much for coming to the Birthday Party for SPIN THE GOLDEN LIGHT BULB! To get this party started, we thought you might like to know a bit about our guest of honor, the first of The Crimson Five middle-grade books. So let’s hop aboard the Piedmont aero-bus where we’ll travel fifty years into the future. It’s time to meet Kia Krumpet, the girl whose mind swirls…
The year is 2071. Kia Krumpet is eleven years old. She bites her nails (a lot) and flies an aero-scooter. And she dreams of building her sixty-seven inventions at PIPS, the Piedmont Inventor’s Prep School.
The event is the Piedmont Challenge. A challenge in which all 6th graders solve a series of tasks. The winners compete in teams to earn a place at PIPS. The rest are forced to study one school category for all of 7th and 8th grade. (That’s two whole years!)
The place is Camp Piedmont. The most imaginative and innovative camp around. But in a world full of floating playgrounds, switching bunk beds, and robotic monkey assistants, there’s more at stake than winning a Golden Light Bulb or creating an invention, and only one team with the courage to figure out what that is.
It’s time to meet The Crimson Five. Kia, Ander, Mare, Jax & Jillian.
Because sometimes it takes a friend (or four) to help make your dreams come true.
Now let’s join in the birthday fun…
The Piedmont Challenge theme song is playing on an endless loop throughout the party to keep you motivated to Think More. Work Hard. Dream Big!
As a party guest, you can choose from the foods found at Camp Piedmont, served from the Spinning Food Flowers, an invention created by one of the past winners of the Piedmont National Finals. The food includes Andora Appelonia’s Scrambles Apples, Seraphina’s Swing’s Salty Snacks, Crimson Five Cupcakes, Camp Piedmont Cookies, and a Spin the Golden Light Bulb Birthday Cake!
You can participate in team building activities like the Human Pretzel and play on the fabulous Floating Playground. You can also help fill Kia Krumpet’s Someday Box with your own invention ideas by writing them on scrolls. But the crowd favorite is definitely the Camp Piedmont classic, Nacho Cheese Ball, the sport of the future!
At this party, you can receive bookmarks, stickers, and your own Crimson Five silver wristbands engraved with the message: Be curious. Be creative. Be collaborative. Be colorful. Be courageous.
