~Starred review in Kirkus Review (March 15, 2007 vol. 75. No.6) "A curious boy discovers the library is the best place to be and librarians are the best people to know in this lighthearted homage. At an early age, Melvin becomes a regular at the Livingston Public Library. He especially likes the reference librarians, Marge, Betty and Leeola, who are interested in everything he is interested in and always able to find answers to his endless questions. They help Melvin with his school projects an he admires their natural talent for creating order out of chaos. A library groupie, Melvin attends every library program and even gets a part time library job when he's in high school. But as Melvin eventually heads off to college, how will he manage without his library family? Morris clearly gets what makes librarians tick, and Sneed's humorous watercolor illustrations capture the soul of "how libarians are" in his perfect renditions of the mission-driving Marge, Betty and Leeol at in action. Kids should get a kick out of the geeky Melvin, his supportive clan of nurturing bibliophiles and his so-very-logical career choice."
