So You Want To Build a Library

by Lindsay Leslie
Illustrated by Aviel Basil

There is no better place in the world than a library. Especially a library that kids create! A million stories high? Sure. Bathtubs? Absolutely. A full-service sundae bar? Of course. Everything is possible in this library—just like in books! Author Lindsay Leslie puts the reader in charge as the architect of a fantastical library in this imaginative picture book celebrating libraries and the joys of reading.

Publishers Weekly

"Slick, unlined art by Basil in lemony yellow, mauve, and baby blue matches Leslie’s enthusiastic text, portraying fanciful figures—a sloth on skates, a snail in a baker’s toque, a guitar-playing waterfowl—emerging from a book. Kids often find autonomy in reading, an idea that these creators take to its logical extreme—and a tack that young library lovers intent on calling the shots are sure to appreciate." - Publishers Weekly
