What would you do if the books that you read came to life? In Chris Grabenstein’s latest novel, The Island of Dr. Libris, Billy and his mother rent a cabin from the mysterious Dr. Libris for the summer. When he breaks his iPhone on the first day doing a good deed and there isn’t a television to be found, it looks like his summer vacation will be boring.
Strange events happen when he discovers the cabin’s unusual library and Dr. Libri’s personal unique and magical island. He reads about the Greek god Hercules… and he comes to life. He reads about Robin Hood and Maid Marian and they come to life as well. Imaginative tales become reality before his very eyes. Is it real or is it just his imagination? Just what is happening on the island of Dr. Libris?
