Mr. Tickety-Toc loved reading and he had books as far as the eye could see. He was looking at his books when he saw one book glowing as bright as a Christmas tree. He took the book off the shelf and decided to look inside. A witch with a tall pointy hat popped out. She told him she was there to grant his wish so that he could visit the inside of his books for a while. He went inside his favorite books where he sailed with a pirate on the high seas, traveled to the moon in a rocket, marched in a band, and played with a monster. Tickety-Toc was very happy but when he got out of the books he did not expect the witch to wave her wand once more. All the characters from the books and the words spilled out of the pages and they were everywhere. The witch disappeared without her wand. Would Tickety-Toc be able to send all the characters and words back into the books without the help of the witch? Would he be able to bring color into the lonely witch's life?
Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock and the Magic Library by Davon Miller is a wonderfully executed story that will make young readers imagine, dream, and experience magic. The author's illustrations are as wonderful as his words and they will put a smile on the faces of all children, especially those who love reading. It is fun to watch Tickety-Toc visiting the places with his favorite characters and I am sure every child who reads this story would want to trade places with Tickety-Toc and experience the magic. The story is whimsical and enchanting and is definitely a good one for parents and tutors to use for storytelling sessions. The witch, the wand, and Tickety-Toc going into the books bring out the whimsy and magic in the plot and will entertain young readers.
