Book Review: Library Lil

Posted on Updated on

Library Lil 

by Suzanne Williams, illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Ages 6 & up, 32 pages

Since the time she was born, Lil loved to read and had a wild imagination. When she was eight, she read all the books in the children’s room at the library. Lil was also very powerful as she held heavy encyclopedias with one hand while turning the pages with her teeth.  Of course, she became the librarian and the town nicknamed her Library Lil. However, there was a problem because people in Chesterville were not readers and their only entertainment was watching television. Lil’s luck turned during a terrible storm that caused the power to be out for two weeks. Library Lil quickly came to the rescue with books to read, which created active readers in Chesterville. The library was the place to be for story time. A motorcycle gang entered town and Bust-’em-up Bill demanded a television to watch his wrestling show. He was disappointed when he learned that the town didn’t watch television anymore and was told to chat with the librarian. Well, Library Lil’s strength and enthusiasm helped make the motorcycle gang become readers.

      I’m sure you as a reader would love the idea of getting people to read! 🙂 It’s a funny story too. Thanks for your comment.

    Hi, can i ask you something? I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like Wolf (or fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Great blog, by the way!

      What age frame are you looking for? I have a favorite three little pigs book, but that’s from the wolf’s viewpoint. It’s more funny than scary. Hmm, I’ll try to find something. Send me a feedback form.

        well I don’t even have the exact age frame, but the stories that I’m mostly looking for are those famous old animal tales for young children. For example the Little RRH, Wolf & 3 little pigs (or 7 little kids), Chicken Little, Peter & the wolf and similar.

        Happy 2012 by the way 😉

          It’s sounds like you’re searching for the ‘classic’ versions without anything funny with the original scary tales.

        ‘classic’ versions without anything funny? I don’t know… I think the illustrations can sometimes be both, funny and scary, it all depends on the kid. But yeah, basically we could say so. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you! Have a great day!
