Ninja Librarians

Happy Friday!

Have you ever had a book on your stack of books

for so long that you have almost forgotten about it?

That happened to me with The Ninja Librarians: The

Accidental Keyhand.  I had  a two whole days

at home alone last weekend so I managed to get to a

couple of books on one of the many piles of to-be-read

books.  One of them was this one.  How could you not want

to read a book with Ninja and Librarian in the title?

It more than lived up to its promise and I spent a fabulous

afternoon (and evening, truth be told) in their world.

The two main characters are chasing an escaped pet

mongoose, stumble into a closet in the library and end up

in Petrarch’s Library whose librarians’  mission is to

“protect those whose words get them into trouble,

anywhere in the world and at any time in history.”  Needless to

say, adventures ensue and you are taken on a wonderful romp

through time and literature with edge of your seat moments,

some snobbery and a surprise villan.  I am not the only one

who loved this book; it received a starred review in Kirkus.

I am also happy to report that there is a sequel coming

next spring:  Ninja Librarians: A Sword in the Stacks.

Keep your eyes peeled.  Have a great weekend and happy
