From the day she was born, Library Lil had a book in her hand - by age eight, she had read all the books in the children's room and started on the encyclopedias, one set at a time. She'd walk down the street with the "A" volume in one hand and all the volumes balanced on the other, turning the pages with her teeth.
Of course, it's no surprise to anyone when Lil grows up to be a librarian herself. With her love of reading, her trusty bookmobile, and a whole lot of gusto, Library Lil even manages to turn the renowned couch-potatoes of Chesterville into readers!
But then Bust-'em-up Bill roars into town with his motorcycle gang. Just mention reading to him and you're toast. It's TV and pool for Bill and his boys, no books allowed! Has Lil finally met her match?
This original tall tale by a real-life librarian, combined with Steven Kellogg's trademark humor, is better than any TV show!
