Boyds Mills Press, hardcover

My Librarian is a Camel by children's author Margriet RuursWhen we think of a Library, we picture a building on a street or perhaps a room in a school. But some libraries aren't kept behind four walls. Some move from place to place in the most remarkable ways: by bus, by boat, by elephant, by donkey and more! These unusual mobile libraries are often the only way that people in remote areas such as in Thailand, Mongolia or Azerbaijan can access books.

This fascinating photo essay will appeal to booklovers of all ages.

"The intriguing view of libraries and children around the world will appeal to many readers, and this book will also pair nicely with other picture books about libraries and books." Review, Horn Book , September 2005
