About This Book
When Mongoose finds a blue library card hidden among the candy he's shoplifted, his friend Weasel tosses the card away. But the card comes back.
Brenda, a television addict, must endure the Great TV Turn-Off. No more "Teen Toons." No more "Dude Feud." Then the blue card appears...
On a hot summer day, Sonseray wanders into a library knowing he'll find air-conditioning - and finds much more.
And April Mendez takes a ride in a bookmobile unlike any other.
In stories that range from humorous to heartbreaking, Newbery award-winner Jerry Spinelli reveals the amazing possibilities lurking behind library doors.
