"A story about a poor boy swept away by a kind library mage and the (literal) magic of reading. [...] In a lushly-detailed fantasy world reminiscent of Arabian Nights, the Great Library is the center of learning in the world, and its librarians are capable of magnificent feats of magic! In a small village far from the Library, a poor little elf boy struggles against bullies who call him "knife-ears." His only solace: the books he sneaks out of the village's tiny branch library, which he's not allowed in. When a librarian from the Great Library arrives, he's dazzled by her knowledge and glamor. Their meeting will change his life and begin the adventure he's always dreamed of having!"

From Library Staff

Prejudice keeps Theo out of the village library. Shunned for his appearance and for being poor, all he wants is to get by, and to read the books a friend sneaks out of the library for him. Then magic-wielding librarians from the City of Books visit Theo's town, and he begins to dream bigger.
