The New LiBEARian
It is story time at the local library, and the children are all very excited. But where is Mrs. Merryweather, the children’s librarian? She is always there for the children. They think she is missing and go on a search for her. There are so many places in a library, exotic and wondrous places one can visit through books. The children find clues — big prints, sticky paw prints, and they discover a new librarian, a very furry librarian. They beg for a story, and the new liBEARian acquiesces. The children want a scary story, and the liBEARian growls, stomps, and roars. But then Mrs. Merryweather shows up and the liBEARian is nowhere to be found, until….
Author Alison Donald has written a sweet story that will delight very young listeners with a very fresh take on what story time can be. Just what might happen if the characters in stories could jump out of the stories and join the listeners? Alex Willmore, illustrator, fills the pages with perfectly charming drawings that reflect the wonderful imaginations children display when they find their ways into storybooks.
