Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the help of Miss Brooks, Missys classmates all find books they love in the library—books about fairies and dogs and trains and cowboys. But Missy dismisses them all—“Too flowery, too furry, too clickety, too yippity.”

Still, Miss Brooks remains undaunted. Book Week is here and Missy will find a book to love if they have to empty the entire library. What story will finally win over this beastly, er, discriminating child? William Steigs Shrek!—the tale of a repulsive green ogre in search of a revolting bride—of course!

Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley pay playful homage to the diverse tastes of child readers and the valiant librarians who are determined to put just the right book in each childs hands.

Denise Doyen, March 7, 2010 (view all comments by Denise Doyen)
Sweet and funny book about a stubbornly-reluctant reader and a passionate librarian. When Book Week arrives, Miss Brooks arms herself with a full array of choices (and decks herself out in hysterical book-themed costumes) determined to find just the right book for her most challenging customer. The story is true to kids' logic that they-like-what-they-like and won't pretend otherwise. The illustrations are laugh-out-loud funny. And the ultimate solution -- just the right book for the little curmudgeon -- made me smile.

Can't imagine this won't be a favorite of both different-drummer kids and creative librarians everywhere -- for it celebrates their spirits and their best mutual win: finding a book that a child will come to love.
