About the Author
Carla Morris received bachelor's and master's degrees in library science from Brigham Young University and was a children's librarian for over thirty years. The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians was inspired by a child who spent a lot of time in her library, ultimately growing up both to work and get married there. She lives in Utah.

Brad Sneed studied design at Kansas University and is a designer, fine artist, and illustrator of more than twenty picture books, some of which he has also written. He lives in Kansas.
Reviews
"Morris is-you guessed it-a children's librarian herself, and her enthusiasm for the field permeates her narrative. But it's Sneed's animated, startlingly accurate depictions of contemporary libraries that make the story engaging. . . Sneed makes it possible for readers to smell the very bindings of the books and hear the shuffle of feet across the carpeted floor. This title will be a surefire hit with librarians."--School Library Journal

★ "A curious boy discovers the library is the best place to be and librarians are the best people to know in this lighthearted homage. . . Morris clearly gets what makes librarians tick, and Sneed's humorous watercolor illustrations capture the soul of 'how librarians are' in his perfect renditions of the mission-driven Marge, Betty and Leeola in action. Kids should get a kick out of the geeky Melvin, his supportive clan of nurturing bibliophiles and his so-very-logical career choice."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
