Editorial Reviews

"Reading has never looked quite so delicious." -Booklist"A story told in witty rhyme, about a bookish Elizabeth Brown, who . . . takes her greatest pleasures in life from her literary treats . . . This is a funny, heartwarming story about a quirky woman with a not-so-peculiar obsession. Cheers for Elizabeth Brown, a true patron of the arts." -School Library Journal"The author and illustrator have created [a] strong, independent, iconoclastic heroine . . . The illustrations of glorious piles of more and more books and of happy, red-headed Elizabeth Brown and a friend reading by the fire . . . depict the acme of utter bliss for bibliomaniacs." -The Horn Book Magazine"A joy to look at." -The New York Times Book Review
