About the Author

Victoria Jamieson received her BFA in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. She worked as a children's book designer before moving to Portland and becoming a freelance illustrator. She has also worked as a portrait artist aboard a cruise ship, and has lived in Australia, Italy, and Canada. She maintains a not-so-secret identity as Winnie the Pow, a skater with the Rose City Rollers roller derby league. She is the author of The Great Pet Escape.


"Rich with references to familiar tales and accompanied by realistic illustrations by Newbery honoree Jamieson, this effort will charm library lovers and would make a fine read-aloud as brave, endearing Eddie navigates one terrible peril after another. An excellent, engaging tale for a broad range of ages."--Kirkus Reviews
"A bookish bug finds a way to save the school library . . . Bailey fills her narrative with references to classic works of the past and present, and has picked a theme (and outcome) that will be dear to the hearts of young readers as well as educators and librarians."--Booklist (starred review)
"A warm, funny tribute to the power of books and stories, Eddie's adventure will have readers seeing anew the magic of libraries and ready to defend them from the Ms. Grisches of the world."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Eddie's humorously wide-eyed, bug-level perspective allows the book to celebrate education and reading without becoming didactic, and Jamieson's personality-rich illustrations match the book's tone perfectly."--Horn Book Magazine
"Avid readers will enjoy the plethora of references to beloved children's tales, as well as the adventures of an unlikely champion who overcomes human-size obstacles. ...Eddie delivers an entertaining bug's-eyed perspective on the larger world, and Jamieson's b&w spot illustrations match the story's energy."--Publishers Weekly
