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

Review:

"This is a funny, heartwarming story about a quirky woman with a not-so-peculiar obsession. Cheers for Elizabeth Brown, a true patron of the arts." School Library Journal

Review:

"The author and illustrator have created [a] strong, independent, iconoclastic heroine..." The Horn Book

Review:

"A joy to look at." The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

Elizabeth Brown loves to read, and she collects books — lots of books. When her library grows so enormous she can't use her front door anymore, there's only one thing to do...start her own public library!
