Reading Beauty

Time to fall into a deep read!

“Highly recommended as a read-aloud, or a gift for readers who enjoy stories about the power of books. ”  —The Fairview Review

“What a tribute to librarians, those excellent people who have inspired us all!”  —J. Thompson, life-long librarian

“Wow! So SO LOVE this whimsical, twisted fairy tale with its message that even the most reluctant reader can find a book that will capture them!” -Adrienne Gear, readingpowergear


With vibrant illustrations by Mary Grace Corpus, this fairytale twist from Pelican Publishing Co. is perfect for both avid and reluctant readers.

What happens when the mysterious school librarian hears Ellie say she hates reading?  Magic!  Suddenly, Ellie falls into a deep read.  Soon she’s lost in the library behind towers and turrets of books. The whole town wants to help, but there’s only one way to break the spell.  Can her friend Gabe overcome his fear of reading and save Ellie, or will he fall under the same enchantment?

Fanciful illustrations propel readers and non-readers on an unforgettable adventure sure to help them fall into a deep read of their own!
