The Dragon in the Library Review

Fantasy / Magical Featured Books for 7+ readers

Stacks of adventure!

As book-loving children know, all the best stories start in the library and that’s certainly the case here. Kit would rather be looking for wildlife in her local cemetery but her friends make her take a detour via the library where she discovers some amazing things: a librarian who’s also a wizard, a dragon sleeping in the basement, and her own magical powers. All these things are put to good use to stop a wicked landowner, whose plans to turn the library into a carpark are actually cover for something even more despicable. This will be great fun for children who like stories overflowing with magic, and Kit and her friends are very appealing characters.

Other Info

Tom Bonnick, Editor, says:  “Funny and exciting, wonderfully child-centred, brilliantly conceived, and with a real social conscience
- underneath the great story is a wonderful message: that books are MAGIC and that without libraries the world will end."

The Dragon in the Library Synopsis

Kit can't STAND reading, She'd MUCH rather be outside, playing games and getting muddy, than stuck inside with a book. But when she's dragged along to the library one day by her two best friends, she makes an incredible discovery - and soon it's up to Kit and her friends to save the library ... and the world.
