A cute mind mint. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. This was a refreshing, fun, breezy read that is very much serialized. There are short, short stories strung together as chapters and they are so vividly written it is as if you’re actually watching it. It was a change of pace from my normal fare and served to entertain while giving me a much needed break. It is a page turner but not in a gasp, OMG, I don’t believe they did that short of way – but in a “I love this break I’m having way”. When Tom moves to Skunk Corners to become the new librarian, the only person that seems to want him to stick around is Big Al the schoolteacher who Tom insists on calling Alice – her real name. As this cute read goes one, you find that Tom is slowing and efficiently teaching the miserable town folk quite a bit without their knowledge. This is a great read-aloud book for children and a refreshing return to innocent for the older generation. I found myself smiling as I went along. In a word it was fun and I wished it went on a little longer.
This was such a cute and funny book. The Ninja Librarian, Tom, comes to Skunk Corners to be the new librarian. The town at first doesn't really want him and makes bets on how long he will stay since everyone tries to make him feel unwelcome. Tom isn't put off by their brash ways and ends up teaching the town quite a few different thing.
