Review: A flamboyant new librarian arrives at the oldest public library in Texas and is dismayed that it is underused and lacks a space just for children. Based on the true story of RoseAleta Laurell, this book chronicles her fund-raising plan: she vows to camp out on the library roof until $20,000 is raised for a new children's section. Illustrations by Kansan Stephen Gilpin are lively and fun.
