The Lost Library

The Lost Library is a sweet book about little kids who like reading so much. The plot is very simple and predictable and lacks any measurable detail, so you probably wouldn’t read it more than once. The main idea of the book is clever and could rather easily be turned into a chapter book teeming with details and more suspense.

The pictures are mediocre. They look like they were done on a computer so they’re missing a certain painterly quality. E-books and computer drawings aren’t such a big deal, but if it is going to be actually printed out and enjoyed, the pictures should just be done better than so many books today.

Young readers will enjoy the librarian’s challenge at the start of the book about finding a dragon on each page.
