Published: Feiwel & Friends - August 29th, 2023

At first, I thought this book was a bit confusing, but all of a sudden it pulled me in and I was engrossed until the end. This is such a cute story about accepting your truth and path in life. It's also about friendship and love that binds people together. There is adventure and mystery, that is exciting but not too intense for young readers. The Lost Library is certainly a book that I will read again with my children.
