Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Although the stereotypical representation of a stern librarian is a bit offensive, the information is delivered in a clever way. Two Library Secret Service agents complete with earpieces and dark glasses explain the V.O.G. (very official guidelines) for taking the best care of books. A ghost reminds children that books can disappear and to never lend your library book to one, much less to an alien. The pop quiz gives quick reinforcement in a way that will appeal to children. Large illustrations with V.O.G. numbers 1�16 and running commentary from the agents fill the pages, and there is a nice balance between art and text. With its humorous twist, this is a good choice to help explain the rules to young library users.—Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN

Book Care Book with a Fun Twist This book is clever, and I believe it will be a very entertaining book to share with my third grade library classes. I had not read this book previously, however, and I was STUNNED to find a typographical error on the third page. Instead of "Library SECRET Service" the book reads "Library SECRECT Service!" Yikes! (Has anyone told the publisher, and is it being reprinted?)

Learn all about caring for your library books from the L.S.S. (who knew the library had its very own secret service)! You’ll learn things like don’t let your pets eat your books, don’t leave your books out in the sun and never, EVER let a ghost borrow your library book. You’ll also learn that the most important thing to do with your library book is… READ IT! Why I liked this book – This is a hilarious book! The illustrations are even funny! I like how they look like they were cut from paper. PLUS the book has a great message, take care of your books! I like the V.O.G.s listed in the book and what the L.S.S. agents say/do! *NOTE I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
