What would you do if a character escaped from a book? What if that character was a monster? Four children will have to solve this problem - one more time. Hungry Howard (that is the monster's name) had already escaped once, and it did not work to trap him in a jail book. Who can advise the children on how to proceed this time? The librarian, of course. Her name is Miss Beth, and she has the solution: read the book to the monster. Will our young heroes be able to find Howard and capture him? Laurel Lorenzini will reveal all in Library Monster and the Book of Pickles.
As a child, I often fantasized about characters who escaped from their books to live in our world, but I realized that if one of them were a monster, things would be unpleasant. In Library Monster and the Book of Pickles, this amusing nightmare comes true for four children, and I have to say I had a blast with them. Laurel Lorenzini described this scenario delightfully, setting the tale in a world that all children who love books will find pleasant and familiar - the library. The book is delightful to read and beautiful to admire because the illustrations are wonderful. I recommend it to all young readers who love to fantasize about the characters in their books and how they might behave if they ran away. I am sure they will have a lot of fun.
