Publisher Comments:

From the Newbery-award winning author of Maniac Magee.

Mongoose, Brenda, Sonseray, and April have nothing in common...until a mysterious blue card appears as if by magic and begins to change each of their lives. None of them guesses it at first, but that strange blue card will be their ticket to the past--and to a future that they never imagined. In stories that range from humorous to heartbreaking, Newbery-award-winner Jerry Spinelli reveals the amazing possibilities lurking behind library doors.

Synopsis:

WHO KNOWS WHAT IT WILL MAKE YOU DO....

When Mongoose finds a blue library card hidden among the candy he's shoplifted, his friend Weasel tosses the card away. But the card comes back.

Brenda, a television addict, must endure the Great TV Turn-Off. No more "Teen Toons". No more "Dude Feud". Then the blue card appears...

On a hot summer day, Sonseray wanders into a library knowing he'll find air-conditioning — and finds much more.

And April Mendez takes a ride in a bookmobile unlike any other.

In stories that range from humorous to heartbreaking, Newbery award-winner Jerry Spinelli reveals the amazing possibilities lurking behind library doors.

Synopsis:

Jamie "Mongoose" Hills finds the little blue card among the candy he's shoplifted. Brenda is saved by the card during the Great TV Turn-Off. And April Mendez takes a ride in a bookmobile unlike any other. Here are four unforgettable stories from a master storyteller.
