The Good Little Book, by Kyo Maclear, is just that, a good little book. It is neither the most popular book, nor the most thick or glossy. It has a simple cover, and just continued to sit on the shelf where it was placed along with all the other books. And that is where it stayed. But this story also has a little boy. And when the little boy passed the quiet shelf, that’s when the Good Little Book caught his attention. The little boy picked up the Book and began to open it. That’s when the friendship began. The little boy carried his favorite Book everywhere he went. The Good Little Book was so powerful that it actually caused the boy to read this Good Little Book over and over again. Then, read it some more. This Little Book had the ability to capture its reader and carry the little boy to strange and marvelous lands. It caused him to chuckle, and became his best friend. Until one day, the boy lost the book. Oh, goodness. Now we are all waiting for you to come visit us at the Mount Prospect Library and to find this intriguing tale, and see what really is inside the Good Little Book !
