The Lost Library
When a mysterious little free library (guarded by a large orange cat) appears overnight in the small town of Martinville, eleven-year-old Evan plucks two weathered books from its shelves, never suspecting that his life is about to change. Evan and his best friend Rafe quickly discover a link between one of the old books and a long-ago event that none of the grown-ups want to talk about. The two boys start asking questions whose answers…

The Lost Library was probably one of the best books I’ve ever read. It was very intriguing and I would definitely recommend it. I really love Mortimer, all of his 24 toes and I like how he always listens to his own heart speaking, too. Even though Mortimer is my favourite character, I also really loved Al and Evan. It really left me wondering if Al is her real name though. Two words to describe it would probably be, Mysterious and Heartfelt (Because I can’t pick one). It was amazing and I didn’t want it to end.

I thought the book was very interesting. It included mystery, passion, adventure and a love for books. I liked how all of the characters had a personality of their own. They were all so different, yet they shared the same likes, such as a love for books. The mystery of the story was very suspenseful. Whenever I read a page, it made me super excited to read the next. I really hope that the authors write a sequel to it, that’s how much I enjoyed it! I would recommend this book to other kids. If it had more pictures in it, other kids may enjoy that. But that’s all that could be improved. The book was really cool! I loved it a lot and I will give it a 5 star rating.
