Book Review


Somewhere there is a library that opens only at night. Animals from all over town come to the library and the little librarian and three assistant owls help them find books to read. It is a very busy place. There are squirrels needing help finding the right music for their next concert, a wolf needing comfort, and a tortoise that needs more time to finish his book. The little librarian knows just what to do to make the library a fun and peaceful place. Libraries everywhere will find this book to be a must have. The little librarian introduces her animal friends to the right place in the library to do all the things they would like to do. This book makes the library sound like a fun place to be where there is always someone around to help. The illustrations are in grayscale and are simple, but darling. After reading this book children will be excited to visit their local library and have a library card of their very own.
