Review: Leilong the Library Bus

Who doesn't love a good story?

We all want to be intrigued and captivated by a fun and engaging tale, and Leilong the Brontosaurus is no exception.

Lelong's friends, Mo, Maggie and Max are excited to introduce Lielong to the wonders of story time at the local library.

He enthusiastically carries his friends to the library, leaving chaos in his wake. 
But to everybody's disappointment, he can't join in.

Being bigger than the building itself presents a few problems.

However, the enterprising bunch soon find a solution that allows Leilong to participate with all of his friends...but maybe the title gives the solution away.

The illustrations are hilarious, and have a crazy, cartoonish vibe to them that matches the story perfectly.

Originally published in Taiwan, the story beautifully captures the essence of the wonder that we all experience with a good book, and the joy of sharing this.
