 Sunrise Elementary School has a large and very scaly problem. The school has hired a new librarian to clean up, reorganize and take care of things in the school library. Unfortunately they have hired a dragon to do the job, a dragon who will not let any of the children so much as touch a single book. Miss Lotta Scales is determined that her library will be pristine with no "sticky finger" marks on any of the precious volumes.
  Under these conditions it can be no surprise to learn that the children come to hate the library and miss their story hour very much. There seems to be no answer to the problem of what to do about Miss Lotta Scales. Then, one day something quite remarkable happens and the library dragon makes an extraordinary transformation.
  Brightly colorful and humorous artwork help make this funny story a pleasure to read, especially out loud.
