Summary
In a fast-paced and funny adventure, Kit must use the magic of books to save the library--and its resident dragon--from a power-hungry tycoon.

Kit Spencer can't stand reading. She'd rather be outside playing and getting muddy than stuck inside with a book. But when her best friends, Josh and Alita, drag her to the local library, Kit makes an incredible discovery: she's a wizard--and books are the key to her abilities. Unfortunately, a greedy businessman wants to tear down the beloved library, destroying all its magic. To make matters worse, there's a sleeping dragon hidden there, and if she's awakened, her wild power will wreak havoc. With the help of a friendly dragon-dog hybrid named Dogon, Kit and her companions will have to find a way to save the dragon in the library--and maybe the world! A humorous romp full of library enchantment, with a diverse cast of characters and dynamic illustrations.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kit and her two best friends, Josh and Alita, are trying to decide what to do on the first day of summer vacation. Kit wants to explore an old, overgrown cemetery, but Alita and Josh want to go to the library. Kit thinks that is a mind-numbingly boring idea, but she gives in. The library, however, changes Kit's life: according to Faith, the librarian, Kit is a wizard, and it will be up to Faith to guide her into both wizardry and librarianship, skills that are inextricably linked. Kit is thrilled, especially when she starts learning spells, until a threat appears in the form of Hadrian Salt, a wealthy wannabe wizard. He wants to wake up the dragon sleeping under the library and drain her power. Faith, Kit, and her friends have to work together to stop him. Stowell stirs together her characters and her narrator with a cheery spoon, and her story is generously laced with humor. With inviting text and an engaging protagonist, this should have wide appeal."
