When the Library Lights Go Out

Illustrated by Katherine Tillotson

CLOSED may mean "closed" to you. But for three story-hour puppets, CLOSED means "open for adventure."
At first there are only Rabbit and Lion. Hermit Crab is missing. Where can she be in the library darkness? Find out for yourself when -- magically -- only puppets are up and about.

Megan McDonald, beloved author of the Judy Moody books, is also a gifted storyteller. She is the author of When the Library Lights Go Out, illustrated by Katherine Tillotson; The Hinky-Pink, illustrated by Brian Floca; and the now-classic Is This a House for Hermit Crab?, illustrated by S.D. Schindler. She lives in Sebastopol, California.
