Synopsis

Synopsis

With the help of Miss Brooks, Missy’s classmates all find books they love in the library—books about fairies and dogs and trains and cowboys. But Missy dismisses them all—“Too flowery, too furry, too clickety, too yippity.”

Still, Miss Brooks remains undaunted. Book Week is here and Missy will find a book to love if they have to empty the entire library. What story will finally win over this beastly, er, discriminating child? William Steig’s Shrek!—the tale of a repulsive green ogre in search of a revolting bride—of course!

Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley pay playful homage to the diverse tastes of child readers and the valiant librarians who are determined to put just the right book in each child’s hands.

Praise

Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 2010:
“Bottner’s deadpan humor and delicious prose combine with Emberley’s droll caricatures to create a story sure to please.”
 
Review, Publishers Weekly, February 8, 2010:
“The heroine makes an indelible presence… Emberley’s (Mail Harry to the Moon!) slice-of-life cartooning is funny, empathetic, and of-the-moment. This story should persuade hard-to-please children that the perfect book for them is out there.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2010:
“In a word: lovable.”
