Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers....the place to be when you wish upon a star and that wish included some GREAT READS.
Today is no except to that wish sent or granted as we play host to a stop along a very FUN tour indeed thanks to the fabulous folks over at Peachtree Publishers (Hi, Emily!). It features a one of a kind story about books, our love of them, and those that would protect them...though perhaps a bit overly at times. It's got a BIG heart and offers readers of all ages a chance to explore their literary world in a creative and interactive way; just avoid the mention of ebooks while reading this one, don't want to rile up Miss Lotty. Without further ado, please welcome today's blog tour guest and book of choice....
From the publisher...
In this sequel to The Library Dragon, Miss Lotty is finally checking herself out of the Sunrise Elementary School Library, but not before Lotta Scales makes one final, fiery stand.
Experiencing a moment of deja vu? With good reason as I actually featured a review of books 1 AND 2 a few months back; just click HERE to be whisked away to that world of double post fun. So what's with the double vision? Well, when you have such a GREAT BOOK on your hands by such a GREAT AUTHOR and you're offered the chance to host a stop on a blog tour from a GREAT PUBLISHER...it's hard to say no; not that I wanted to in the least! You know me...have/read good book, will party! ^_^ So I bring to you today, Return of The Return of the Library Dragon....aka my post about this fabulous book, why you should read it AND ENTER TO WIN some fab prizes, part deux.
I said it before and I'll say it again...I LOVE THIS BOOK! No really, the title itself is great but the story within is fabulous! It captures the reading world as it is today, all transitions and new horizons, blends it together with a heaping dose of book BOOK (as in paper book or tree book) love and shows us the final results through the eyes of both a child AND one obsessive...I mean ADORING librarian. ^_^
|Miss Lotty *flip* Miss Scales!|
Basically what I'm saying is that there is a time and place for everything...something that Miss Lotty learns thanks to a dear old friend. The world we live in is a BIG place and changes in the blink of an eye. Allow yourself time to slow down and enjoy the small everyday moments...and the company of a good book. You may be surprised at the ideas, the conversations it sparks not to mention the instant addition of family/friend time to your uber busy schedule. Who couldn't do with a little more of that?
Now, on to another bit of fun....THE CONTEST! The first of TWO to be exact...(for details on the second one be sure to keep reading this post!) and an exciting one indeed. Thanks to the generosity of the publisher, it's your chance to win a copy of this fabulous book! Remember, though it's a sequel to Miss Lotty's first adventure, book one is not required reading to enjoy book two! Ready for the details? Here we go...
