The Librariest

I'm an elementary librarian in need of justifying the amount of books I reads aimed at eleven year-olds by organizing them on a nifty website.

The Dirty Cowboy

The Dirty Cowboy - Adam Rex Very humorous. Timberlake's descriptions are vivid and enjoyable and Rex's illustration are hilarious. It is, however, way too wordy to make a solid picture book. Those great descriptions needed to be pared in half or to a third.
