Don’t Check Out This Book!

We rated this book:


Appleton has a terrible economy and a school with only nineteen children, until librarian Rita B. Danjerous and her daughter, May B. Danjerous, move in. But the town isn’t sure about them. With the election of Ivana Beprawpa (say it aloud), uniforms are mandatory and available at Beprawpa Attire. But Rita won’t buy a complete uniform. Soon she’s created a “green dot” collection, refused to resign at the principal’s request, and befriended the secretary, Gladys Friday. Some like her, but others have the opposite mind. Will these bad apples spoil the bunch, or will the seeds of truth sprout? Find out in this tale of scandal and stylish ties.

CHECK OUT THIS BOOK! I love this story and have read it three times. It’s entertaining, funny, and put together in a unique format. Consisting entirely of letters, newspapers, and texts, it is charming and creative a few pages in, but pay attention in the beginning or you’ll get confused. It’s got an inspiring message, funny characters, and celebrates books! What’s not to like?

To use a joke you won’t understand until you read it: “Buy this book right now! I politely yet firmly insist you buy this book!”
