What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In a fast-paced and funny adventure, Kit must use the magic of books to save the library–and its resident dragon–from a power-hungry tycoon. Kit Spencer can’t stand reading. She’d rather be outside playing and getting muddy than stuck inside with a book. But when her best friends, Josh and Alita, drag her to the local library, Kit makes an incredible discovery: she’s a wizard–and books are the key to her abilities. Unfortunately, a greedy businessman wants to tear down the beloved library, destroying all its magic. To make matters worse, there’s a sleeping dragon hidden there, and if she’s awakened, her wild power will wreak havoc. With the help of a friendly dragon-dog hybrid named Dogon, Kit and her companions will have to find a way to save the dragon in the library–and maybe the world! A humorous romp full of library enchantment, with a diverse cast of characters and dynamic illustrations.
