A sweet, magical story of a Book Witch and her dog, desperate to find a solution to that most common bookish problem: too many books!

With a sorrowful look at that bandaged wee white tail, the Book Witch declared, "these books must go!"

After travelling the world and collecting books from every country, the Book Witch is now settled at home with her wee white dog. She spends her days reading, surrounded by piles and piles of books. Life is good.

Until one stormy day when a massive gust of wind blows a pile of heavy books over, landing on the Wee White Dog's tail! Something must be done before tragedy strikes again. What can the Book Witch do with all these books?

With whimsical, colourful illustrations this delightful story captures the unique kind of magic that little libraries can inspire in communities everywhere.

About the authors

Lana Shupe fell in love with books when she was a toddler and has never stopped loving them. Telling and writing stories has always been a part of her life. Her house is full of books — even the bathroom has books! She reads anywhere she can find a spot while devouring potato chips that are entirely not good for her. Lana's best little writing buddy, her Westie, Thunder, was by her side while she wrote this story.
