"Beatrice’s expressions are priceless. . . . This charming tale emphasizes the importance of finding the right book for the right reader." —- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

And she certainly doesn’t want to sit in a room full of kids during story hour. Is there anything that could possibly change her mind?
