What it’s about: A little boy and his brother visit the library for a quiet Saturday of reading, until a monster turns up.
What made me pick it up: I had placed Chris Hadfield’s children’s book The Darkest Dark on hold and OverDrive recommended this to me instead. It sounded good enough, and it was available, so I checked it out.
My favorite things: As a librarian I am always intrigued by books about libraries, and this picture book was no different. I really enjoyed the little boy helping the monster learn how fun reading and storytime are. Also there are donuts. Who can resist?
Who it’s great for: Library lovers of all ages. Littles who want to see a character who enjoys library visits, reading, and storytime as much as they do.
