From the day she was born, Lil had a book in her hand...so it's no surprise when she grows up to become a librarian herself. She even manages to turn the people of Chesterville-who are couch potatoes-into readers. But then Bust-'em-up Bill roars into town with his motorcycle gang. Just mention reading to him and you're toast. Has Lil finally met her match? This original tall tale by a real-life librarian, combined with Steven Kellogg's trademark humor, is better than any TV show!

"A librarian's favorite fantasy...The silliness of both story and pictures are perfectly matched...A winner for storytimes anywhere."
-School Library Journal, starred review

"This love story about books is enough to make anyone wish for a permanent TV blackout!"
-Children's Literature

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?A librarian's favorite fantasy. Lil the librarian is discouraged because no one comes to her dynamite storytimes, and no one checks out her terrific new books. The whole town would rather watch TV. Then one happy, stormy night, the power fails and stays off for two solid weeks. Lil pushes (credit her childhood practice lifting encyclopedias) the bookmobile (dead battery) around town and?presto!?changes vacant-eyed boob tubers into avid readers. But pretty soon, here comes trouble in the person of Bust-'em--up Bill, the tattooed leader of the (gasp) motorcycle gang. Bill blames Lil because there's no danged TV in the pool hall. Confrontation in the library parking lot! Bill's gang is waiting right where Lil wants to park her bookmobile. Will they move their bikes? Are you kidding? Nobody messes with Big Bad Bill, except of course, our heroine Lil. One by one, she tosses them aside, earning the respect of the not-so-scary desperadoes. The payoff is reading books, and since these guys are not academically gifted, Lil starts them off with Easys (Kellogg titles, natch). Pretty soon Lil has a new assistant. Bust-'em-up Bill is now Bookworm Bill, and the two even watch a little TV now and then. The silliness of both story and pictures are perfectly matched. Kellogg's distinctive toothy kids and laughing cats crowd the pages, fitting right in with the baby-faced biker banditos. A winner for storytimes anywhere.?Ruth Semrau, formerly at Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
