Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—These attractive volumes will be a boon to librarians seeking fresh material to use when introducing library basics. Each book couches the relevant information within the framework of a story, adding significant interest to what is otherwise potentially dry material. In Bob, Alison Wonderland introduces an interplanetary visitor to standard library organization. The text is clear and logical and punctuated by Bob's amusing observations. Bored Bella compares and contrasts fiction and nonfiction as the librarian (Ms. Paige Turner) slowly but surely captures the child's attention. Pingpong Perry follows the path of a book from the initial inspiration to the publicity that follows publication. Karl and Carolina examines the various components of a book on dinosaurs. The brightly colored, digitally rendered illustrations feature a multiethnic cast of characters and have plenty of kid appeal.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
