Lovely Cover. Just the Right Amount of Spookiness.
FAIRDAY MORROW AND THE TALKING LIBRARY
By Jessica Haight and Stephanie Robinson

Have you ever met a bookworm that eats words in a book? If not, now is your chance. Pick up a copy of FAIRDAY MORROW AND THE TALKING LIBRARY by Authors Jessica Haight and Stephanie Robinson and help Fairday and friends solve the mystery of Begonia House.
From the very beginning we are on an adventure with Fairday, Lizzie, and Marcus, the DMS (Detective Mystery Squad) to discover the meaning of notes written in riddles about words being lost and a bookworm and something about shoes that Fairday keeps receiving. Will the DMS solve the mystery in time to save the books, or will the bookworm win and destroy all the books. How horrible to not have books to read.
FAIRDAY MORROW AND THE TALKING LIBRARY is such a fun read. And I was right there with the DMS, trying to solve the mystery. I bet you will be too. The authors have just the right amount of spookiness in the story. The idea of books being eaten by a bookworm has given me a new definition for the word “bookworm.” I always thought it meant a person who read a lot, but in this story we meet a new sort of bookworm.
And, how about a Halloween party with guests dressed as … I’m not telling. This novel is perfect for school classrooms and libraries, as well as your own library. Recommended.
I received an ARC for my honest review.
