The Island of Dr. Libris Book Review

The Island of Dr. Libris - Chris Grabenstein

I'm beginning to really love this author and his children's books. They're just so wonderfully written and full of delightful characters and plots that kids are bound to love them. This one definitely lived up to Mr. Lemencello's Library. 

 

Billy is spending the summer in a cabin of Dr. Libris. When he travels to the Island and opens one of his books he finds that the characters come alive. Characters like Robin Hood and Hercules. It begins with sounds and then continues to grow into a full on treasure hunt. 

 

So much fun. I read this on vacation in a few hours and I will definitely be keeping this one in mind for reader's advisory. Fans of adventure will love this book.
