The Midnight Library
by Kazuno Kohara
This week's pick is by Cottager: Kara LaReau
What it's all about . . .
Once there was a library that opened only at night. Managed by a young librarian and her three assistant owls, everything at the library was peaceful and quiet, until it was overrun by a band of squirrels, nearly flooded by mysterious tears, and occupied by a certain very sloooow reader.
Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf . . .
A library for nocturnal readers (not unlike certain Cottagers we know), portrayed in moody autumnal tones, featuring cuddly woodland creatures? Where do we get our library cards?
Our favorite line . . .
“I must stay until I finish reading this book,” said the tortoise. “I only have 500 pages left!”

A dreamy, cozy setting, and a perfect bedtime story.
Why grown-ups will love it . . .
A great way to encourage a love for books, reading, libraries, and nighttime.
