No roaring allowed! Well, sometimes rules need to be altered if there's a very good reason! Normalcy prevails at Knudsen's Library--story hours with attentive youngsters, patrons browsing the stacks and using computers, librarians providing assistance. But then a lion walks through the door. What's normal about that, and how will Miss Merriweather handle the personal and personnel problems that arise? Christine Marshall has the calmness of a lion tamer and a librarian. She lets the subtleties of the plot and the humor speak for themselves. Her quiet tone gives way to dramatic punch when the lion shows up; her pacing heightens the pleasure in each twist of the story. Poring over Kevin Hawkes's illustrations while listening brings additional pleasure. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
