Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
A mysterious wind blows the pages of a weird book left on an empty street. It turns the pages into sharp, bat-like objects that fly on their own. The pages are dark and hungry. Only the Librarian can prevent a young boy from falling prey to the razor attack of the bats. Only the Librarian knows the one thing that could possibly defeat them. It is a book that was long ago stolen from the Library of Doom. The Library is the world's largest collection of strange and dangerous books. The Librarian's duty is to keep the books from falling into the hands of those who would use them for evil purposes. There's also a sense of irony or a sense of humor with having the librarian as the hero. Both the skimpy text and the eerie drawings create a dark and ominous book. There are key words through out that are highlighted for effect and seemingly used in descriptive and haunting ways. The illustrations are fantastic for this book. There is "A Page From the Library of Doom" that is really a short historical record of paper. There are "About the Author" and an "About the Illustrator" sections plus a glossary, discussion questions, writing prompts, and Internet sites. It is a good book to be picked up and read as a short graphic novel. It is even better for teaching "writing prompts" generating questions and best of all it may trigger requests for other mysteries.
