When the Library Lights Went Out, by Megan McDonald and Katherine Tillotson, ages 4-8
This is the story of the antics of the library puppets after the library closes for the day. Rabbit and Lion are on the hunt for their friend Hermit Crab, who’s nowhere to be found. They find a map, and use it to make their way through the library, using their imaginations all the way. They identify a potted plant as a giant beanstalk and a blue area rug as a giant’s bathtubbut are willing to brave these hazards to find their friend. The illustrations are very appealing, as are the characters themselves.
