The Library

Written by Sarah Stewart, illustrated by David Small

Elizabeth Brown doesn’t like to play with dolls, and she doesn’t like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. And now that she’s grown up, her collection has gotten so big all the shelves are collapsing. Her front door has disappeared entirely. What in the world will she do? The reclusive Elizabeth Brown surprises everyone with her splendid solution.

“…a joy to look at, from its delicately framed full-page illustrations to the witty doodads that fill the white spaces around the smaller ones. The pacing seems perfect…”
