SWON Libraries Consortium - Pamela Healy, Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton Co.

"The story gives good examples of fiction and nonfiction and how books about a subject could be both, depending on the purpose, which is in the description of the book. Call numbers are explained and it gives further information and a glossary. It is helpful for library units." - SWON Libraries Consortium

Book Links - Mary Northrup, Reference Librarian

"In the Library, a new series published earlier this year, is a four-book set written by Sandy Donovan and illustrated by several different artists. Titles include Bob the Alien Discovers the Dewey Decimal System, Bored Bella Learns about Fiction and Nonfiction, Karl and Carolina Uncover the Parts of a Book, and Pingpong Perry Experiences How a Book is Made. Each picture book whimsically describes library basics through a lighthearted story and features a glossary and list of additional reading.”" - Book Links

School Library Journal - Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

"These attractive volumes will be a boon to librarians seeking fresh material to use when introducing library basics. Each book couches the relevant information within the framework of a story, adding significant interest to what is otherwise potentially dry material. In Bob, Alison Wonderland introduces an interplanetary visitor to standard library organization. The text is clear and logical and punctuated by Bob’s amusing observations. Bored Bella compares and contrasts fiction and nonfiction as the librarian (Ms. Paige Turner) slowly but surely captures the child’s attention. Pingpong Perry follows the path of a book from the initial inspiration to the publicity that follows publication. Karl and Carolina examines the various components of a book on dinosaurs. The brightly colored, digitally rendered illustrations feature a multiethnic cast of characters and have plenty of kid appeal." - School Library Journal
