As you know I'm a librarian, but aside from a few months here and there I've never worked in a public library. If I did, and didn't have to drive it, I would LOVE to work in a mobile library. I could spend days telling you all why this is, but I'll stick to reviewing this marvelous little book for now.

The Night Bookmobile, tells the story of an avid reader who, in at a bad moment in her life, stumbles upon the Night Bookmobile and it's fabulous collection. The librarian is inspiring, too! (I love a good strong hero!) But, here's where this leaves the realm of picture books and flings itself head-first into the darker world of graphic novels for grown-up: her wish to work in Harry Potterish Night Bookmobile requires a sinister step.......Too tell more would spoil it for you all! And, I KNOW, you will go out and read this incredible little story.
A classic tale of love, independence, dependence, loss and gain.
