Celebrated author-illustrator Jeanette Winter weaves a hopeful tale of one woman's courageous book rescue.



 In the Spring of 2003, Alia Muhammad Baker was the city of Basra's real-life librarian. She was the keeper of cherished books and her library was a haven for community gatherings.



 But with war imminent in Basra, Iraq, what could this lone woman do to save her precious books?



 With lyrical, spare text and beautiful acrylic illustrations, Jeanette Winter shows how well she understands her young audience.



 This true story of one librarian's remarkable bravery reminds us all how, throughout the world, the love of literature and the respect for knowledge knows no boundaries.
