Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls and she doesnt like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. Lots of books. The only problem is that her library has gotten so big she can't even use her front door anymore. What should Elizabeth Brown do? Start her own public library, of course! With charming verse and watercolors Sarah Stewart and David Small celebrate one of America's oldest and finest institutions.

Review:

"Reading has never looked quite so delicious." Booklist

Synopsis:

Elizabeth Brown loves to read more than anything else, but when her collection of books grows and grows, she must make a change in her life.

Meet an unforgettable bibliophile.

puppetdogheather, September 5, 2012 (view all comments by puppetdogheather)
I am excitedly waiting to read this book so this review is based on anticipation. I have read a synopsis and very much like the premise. However; the real draw and impression has come from the cover. It gives us, the reader, a real set up. I know from this cover that we are dealing with a person that has a lot of books and takes risks when delaing with books and reading books. We also see that she may have a companion cat that could offer some comic input. I connected with this book through a Facebook post of just the cover with no credtis showing on it as to where this illustration came from. I was so intrigued by it I searched it out and now am about to purchase it. In conclusion my review is a pre-review which is a first for me. I also can't wait to read this book to my 5 year old grand-neice who is a book lover too.
