THE NIGHT LIBRARIAN
by Christopher Lincoln

(via Writers House)
Page and Turner Reed always love visiting their local midtown library, and with their parents traveling (again!) and their nanny AWOL, the library has become a great escape. But on their latest visit, they will find themselves swept into an epic adventure when a valuable book they’re carrying disappears at the library. The twins (who are anything but identical) must work to build trust with each other, a mysterious Night Librarian—and some famous characters breaking free from classic books!—as they battle literature’s most dangerous villains to save their beloved library from destruction.
Christopher Lincoln masterfully raises the excitement with his art—his colors light entire scenes, his lines are hilarious and warm, and every page is a love letter to an iconic library and city. Book #2 (2025) will be set in another famous library in the world.
