Book Reviews:

"This celebration of the wonder of the library and the love of reading is sure to please readers everywhere. A perfect choice for a library-themed read-aloud."
-- School Library Journal

"On a high shelf in a busy library sits one lonely book, Dusty the Book of Dinosaurs. ... Rabei's sensitive text tells the story of how a lonely book helps a reluctant reader to begin to read by himself. Her detailed illustrations pair well with the text. Highly recommended for inclusion in any home, school or public library."
-- The Pirate Tree

"This is a great library visit read-aloud, and a wonderful storytime read-aloud. ... An adorable pick for readers and book lovers, and one that will send your readers running to the library."
-- Mom Read It

"A lonely book experiences the joy of being loved by a child in this ode to libraries and reading. Dusty is a library book with a singular problem: No one has read him, so he doesn't know what he is even about. After the library closes for the evening, a delightful gaggle of books comes alive and schemes to help Dusty get noticed. Warm, dynamic colors throughout the library, soft moonlight, and anthropomorphic expressions on the books invite readers in with a quiet earnestness ... Readers will find themselves wanting to hug a book after reading this story."
-- Kirkus Reviews

Did you know that all books in the library come to life when everyone has gone home? Follow the adventure of Dusty as he finds his perfect reader and is borrowed for the very first time.

Children and adults will adore this new look into the world of books - an "origin" story for promoting libraries and books for reluctant (and not-so-reluctant) readers.
