The cover says it all - that's how I felt reading this new chapter in The Bad Seed's life. What a delightful story about the sheer exuberance of loving books - of going to the library - of being in the library - of reading! The story and the illustrations are perfectly paired. The story is awesome; the illustrations are equally awesome.
After reading it once, I immediately ordered a copy for my 7 month-old grandson who lives far, far away. This will become a favorite of the many books his mother reads to him every day.
My copy is going in this 72-year-old grandmother's home library - along side all my other Jory John books and countless (literally) others.
This was a fun title to share with my granddaughters. We sat and read it together in a rocket ship bookshelf at our local library. It helped to create a great memory while teaching the girls about the library. It was also a magical part of the day they received their library cards!
The littles loved the story. They told me it was, "a good book." I think I can confidently say they recommend it as much as I do.
