Mythical Beasts of the School Library
It’s the end of the school year around here and books that haven’t been on the shelves all year are returning.
So forgive me for thinking I’m seeing things.
Is that a unicorn I see?
No, just the once a year phenomenon of congregating Minecraft books.
Wait. That’s a Yeti.
Nope, just the rare sight of a whole bunch of Wimpy Kid books sitting on the shelf. I never see that!
Are you seeing this? I swear I’m seeing the Loch Ness Monster right now.
Ohhh – I was wrong. It’s just a never-before-seen huge batch of Elephant & Piggie books all together.
