Synopsis

After 682 years of faithful service, Miss Lotty is retiring from guarding books. But before she can check out of Sunrise Elementary for good, disaster strikes. Someone has ordered all the books removed from the library and replaced with machines! It s enough to make Lotty feel a little...dragon-like. When she bursts into a fiery rage, only one thing can make her shed her scales: assurance that someone will fight to keep her precious books in the hands of Sunrise s children. Lotty is sure she ll have to stay on and do the job herself, until a surprise appearance from Lotty s old friend Molly Brickmeyer changes things for the better.
Carmen Agra Deedy s timely and humorous tale is paired with Michael White s lively illustrations to create an unforgettable sequel with an important message for librarians and students alike.
