Overview

The Library Dragon by Carmen Agra Deedy, Michael P. White

Elementary school librarian Miss Lotta Scales is so consumed with her responsibility to the books that she's determined not to let any children near them. Not even sweet Miss Lemon, the kindergarten teacher, can convince Miss Scales that "the library belongs to the children." But when Molly Brickmeyer accidentally wanders into the library and begins reading aloud, other children cautiously gather around her. At the sight of this, Miss Lotta Scales's scales begin to fall, and The Library Dragon is transformed into Miss Lotty, librarian and storyteller. However, she still retains some of her dragonly qualities, for, as Deedy says, "Every librarian needs to be a little bit of a dragon—or else, who would guard the books?"

Sunrise Elementary School needed a librarian so they advertised hoping for a perfect match. But what they got was Miss Lotta Scales and she did not want anyone to touch the books. It became very clear she was a REAL fire breathing dragon. So how would they get a book off the shelf and out of the library? Even the teachers came away scorched by the library dragon. Then one day a little girl took a book off the shelf and started reading aloud and the library dragon liked what she was hearing. She actually found she enjoyed Storytime.This is a fun book and I really like the size of this book. But I guess it has to be big in order to hold a fire breathing dragon inside. When I started reading the book I could almost smell something scorching the pages. The illustrations are colorful and the creation of the dragon librarian and her antics will entice children to find the Library Dragon in their own school library. I recommend this book to everyone that loves their librarian. Disclosure I received a free copy of this book from Peachtree Publishers for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
