Description


Meet an unforgettable bibliophile

Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls and she doesnt like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. Lots of books. The only problem is that her library has gotten so big she can't even use her front door anymore. What should Elizabeth Brown do? Start her own public library, of course! With charming verse and watercolors Sarah Stewart and David Small celebrate one of America's oldest and finest institutions.

The Library is a 1995 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year.

Praise For…


“Reading has never looked quite so delicious.” —Booklist

“A story told in witty rhyme, about a bookish Elizabeth Brown, who . . . takes her greatest pleasures in life from her literary treats . . . This is a funny, heartwarming story about a quirky woman with a not-so-peculiar obsession. Cheers for Elizabeth Brown, a true patron of the arts.” —School Library Journal

“The author and illustrator have created [a] strong, independent, iconoclastic heroine . . . The illustrations of glorious piles of more and more books and of happy, red-headed Elizabeth Brown and a friend reading by the fire . . . depict the acme of utter bliss for bibliomaniacs.” —The Horn Book Magazine

“A joy to look at.” —The New York Times Book Review
