Lyric McKerrigan, Secret Librarian

What if there were a superhero who could give people in trouble the very book they need most?...[A] winning concept…cheeky hilarity.”—Publishers Weekly

A super-secret operative saves the world from a diabolical threat through her ability to brandish just the right book at just the right time in this delightfully silly superhero tale illustrated by an Eisner Award-winner and Caldecott Honoree.

When an evil genius has a diabolical plan to destroy every book on the planet, who has the tome-toting page power to thwart his dastardly scheme? Lyric McKerrigan, Secret Librarian! She’s got the gadgets. She’s got the disguises. And she’s always got the right book at the right time. It’s a good thing, too, because Lyric McKerrigan is the world’s last hope! With lots of humor and a “thrilling, action-packed pace” (Horn Book Magazine), Jacob Sager Weinstein and Vera Brosgol introduce a smart and crafty heroine who is part comic-book hero, part reader extraordinaire, and wholly awesome.

“An exciting escapade with an unlikely hero and a not-so-secret message about the power of books.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Sure to delight budding comic fans, crime fighters, and bibliophiles alike.”—School Library Journal
