A funny, playful salute to the power and importance of books from New York Times Best-selling Author Carmen Agra Deedy.
When Sunrise Elementary School advertised for a thick-skinned librarian with a burning love of books, Miss Lotta Scales knew she was perfect for the job. Who could guard books better than a REAL dragon?
Yet when she won't let any of the children take a book from the shelves, the teachers form a delegation. Not even sweet Miss Lemon can convince Miss Lotta Scales that "the library belongs to the children." Fortunately, when nearsighted Molly Brickmeyer stumbles onto a copy of Snuff the Magic Dragon and reads the tale out loud, her storytelling beckons the children back to the library and brings them face to face with the Library Dragon. Can an open book temper the flames of the school's hotheaded librarian?
This humorous tale full of clever dragon puns by New York Times best-selling author Carmen Agra Deedy is paired with Michael P. White's lively illustrations for an entertaining story about the power and importance of books for both children and adults.

About the Author
"An entertaining read... White's brightly colored, squashed and squiggly full-bleed illustrations match the tale for good goofiness. Pro-book and library quotes on the endpapers and multiple punny book titles in the illustrations add an extra touch of fun."
