About the Author

Once upon a time there was a boy who presented a well-thought out proposal for his teacher, Ms. Johnson, convincing her that bringing a pterodactyl to school would be a good idea. The boy is back, and this time he has several reasons why bringing a woolly mammoth to the library would be advantageous to the librarian, Ms. Reeder, and the library's patrons.

Reviews

Gr 1-2-In the tradition of Grambling's earlier books, the young narrator of this persuasive text finds logic in every possible reason to achieve his objective. If only every library had a woolly mammoth. He would learn how to write and apply for a library card, learn not to thump or bellow (it's against the rules), shelve books on the topmost shelf, help check out books, and perhaps provide a soft spot to read for the youngest visitors. At the storybook costume party, he would also make a great "Little Red Woolly Hood," complete with enormous red cape and a basket with checkered napkin. A succession of illustrations captures an old-fashioned small-town library, the enormity of a sensitive cartoon mammoth, and the humor of the ridiculous in each watercolor painting. Text in bold emphasizes the narrator's insistent voice to the final page, as readers are invited to imagine the possibilities of yet another unusual addition to the library staff. For lovers of woolly mammoths and impossibly fantastic "whoppers," and readers in all libraries, this is a welcome purchase.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX (c) Copyright 2012.
