About the Book

The Tiny Hero of Ferny Creek Library

Written by Linda Bailey with illustrations by Victoria Jamieson.

Eddie, a passionate reader and a shiny green bug, saves the school library in this funny, heartwarming tale that fans of  FLORA & ULYSSES and CHARLOTTE'S WEB will love. Includes black-and-white illustrations throughout from Newbery Honor Medalist and New York Times-bestselling author-artist Victoria Jamieson.

Eddie is a tiny green bug who loves to read and who lives behind the chalkboard in the fourth-grade classroom with his parents, his 53 brothers and sisters and his aunt Min. But when Aunt Min goes to the school library to read a book and never returns, Eddie leaves the comfort of his home for the first time and makes the dangerous trek through Ferny Creek Elementary School to find her. After dodging running sneakers, falling books and terrifying spiders, Eddie reaches the library, where he discovers Aunt Min stuck in a perilous situation! To top it all off, there’s a substitute librarian who aims to close the library for good and get rid of all the books!

Encouraged by the brave deeds done by small creatures such as Stuart Little and Charlotte from CHARLOTTE'S WEB, Eddie comes up with a plan to save the library --- a plan that requires all the courage one little bug can muster.
