Synopsis:

A most exciting word has the whole library abuzz. What combination of letters could possibly drive a person to do such absurd things? Fascinated children look on as Miss Divine dines on a table, chomps down a chair, and savors a shelf-all to chase down a single word. Written in the style of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," this book reveals the only verb that could make a librarian practically purr, and that word is READ.

From the Inside Flap:

All librarians love books, but have you ever met one who just ate them up . . . literally? Miss Devine does. In this adaptation of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," one Dewey Decimal diva has gone on a most unusual eating binge. From chomping down the story-hour chair to savoring the nonfiction shelf, Miss Devine is trying to chase down one particularly perfect word.

As the story, told by a wide-eyed witness, gets more outlandish, the tension builds. Children all over the library are dying to know: What combination of letters could have possibly started this absurdly all-consuming spree?

Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton is an award-winning children's author. Her best-selling book, Why Cowboys Sleep with Their Boots On, won the Premier Print Award from Eastman Kodak.

Her other books from Pelican include Cowgirl Alphabet, Why Cowgirls Are Such Sweet Talkers, Why Cowboys Need a Brand, Why Cowboys Need a Pardner, and Nana's Rice Pie. An international speaker, Knowlton loves kicking back on her ranch, Roots & Wings, in Medina, Ohio.

BRAND NEW, I Know a Librarian Who Chewed on a Word, Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton, Herb Leonhard, It's been said that librarians take their love of books to the extreme. In this story, Miss Devine, a bun-wearing bibliophile, has a passion for literacy that reaches new heights. She has actually chewed on a word, claims one small witness to this outrageous event. And as the children gossip in a suspenseful build up, dying to know which word set off this smorgasbord, we discover that Miss Devine has munched her way through the whole library.
