Book lovers of all ages can take an enchanted journey through a labyrinthine fantasy library filled with every book ever written, where the shelves come alive at night, like teeming miniature cities.  One night, a young boy who resides in a cookbook stumbles upon a long-lost file card for a book called How to Live Forever and sets off to find the missing volume.  Thus begins a journey through mystifying literary mazes in Colin Thompson's tour de force of wit, wisdom, and boundless imagination.
