This children's book could have replaced a good portion of my school library media education. The mayor comes to visit Ms. Reade's lively media center, expecting a nice, quiet place to read. Instead, he finds too much noise, and starts shutting off computers, locking up books, and kicking kids out. But the mayor finally realizes that libraries don't work very well without any noise! My only complaint is that the busy illustrations and text fill too much of each page up, so the book feels crowded and cramped. Any school library media specialist could have suggested that busyness only works with meticulous organization, which this book's design lacks.
