"One day, a lion came to the library..."
An affectionate storybook tribute to that truly wonderful place: the library.
Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library: There's no running allowed, and you must be quiet. So when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library! Miss Merriweather decides that as long as the lion follows the rules, he is welcome.
As it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting - and he never roars in the library, at least not since being shushed. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.
This disarming story will win over even the most ardent rule-keepers, with its
feel-good ending and a reminder that sometimes there is a good reason to break
