I Want My Book Back (Kobo eBook)
"A splendid story about the satisfaction that comes from sharing joy (and dinosaurs) with others."--Booklist
"Emotions run high in this volume about a child's deep attachment giving way to sharing... Elbee's take on the emotional attachment that readers form with books feels apt, and a final portrait of Daryl discovering that books can be shared pays ample tribute to libraries." -- Publishers Weekly
"The book's fun illustrations emphasize Daryl's big and scary emotions, including distress, grumpiness, rage, and despair; solace is to be found only somewhere unexpected: in sharing."--Foreward Reviews
