Jamie is a curious little girl who loves books. She loves her local library and all the smells and textures that come with the books she’s read on her weekly visits there.
Jamie has visited every room of her local library – except for one. The MONSTER Bookroom.
It’s dark and scary, and Jamie is sure there are creepy things inside. Still, from the doorway, she can see many books and they all look inviting, in a strange sort of way.
Can Jamie find the courage to step into the dreary,
dusty library room? Will her curiosity get the
better of her? What could possibly be inside?

There was once a curious little girl named Jamie. She loved reading and she loved books.
She loved libraries even more!
She loved the smell. She loved the tall shelves.
She loved the carts piled with new books to explore.
