While to my understanding this is not based on one specific true story, it does honor the pack horse librarians as a special part of American history. David Small’s illustrations are lovely and I love the emphasis on facial expressions, particularly the little boy’s as his opinion of books changes from one of disgust and annoyance to true enjoyment as he witnesses the librarian’s commitment to bringing new books to his family come what may. The story is definitely on the longer side and may be geared towards a bit of an older audience, but it is beautifully written and provides an accessible glimpse into one small piece of isolated Appalachian life.
