Return of the Library Dragon

Return of the Library Dragon
Carmen Agra Deedy
Miss Lotty, the librarian, is retiring. The children love her and are unsure about her replacement. But on her last day of work she walks into the library and realizes that all of the books have been kidnapped and replaced with computers. She gets so angry that she turns into a dragon, the library dragon. A lady named Molly walks in helps Miss Lotty return from being a dragon. She is the new librarian and promises to bring back the books. The illustrations are fun and colorful. The story is about the importance of books. While the story is fun and entertaining, it also brings home the importance of reading to children. Books are important and what could be better than showcasing this point with a book that is fun, entertaining and educational. The inside covers are filled with quotes on about books and the importance of reading.
This book is for ages 5 to 8.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
