The Ninja Librarians: The Accidental Keyhand by
Jen Swann Downey
Reviewed by Anne Strang, Children's Librarian
Well, I have a new favorite fiction book, which I will admit I picked up because the word “librarians” was in the title. It was a wonderful stroke of luck, because The Ninja Librarians is just so much fun! It combines time travel, Harry Potter and even TV’s Person of Interest to present an adventure story about a brother and sister from Passaic, New Jersey who literally fall into the cavernous Lybrariad, home to a secret society of time-traveling warrior librarians who have been quietly saving the world for centuries.
Dorrie and Marcus are appointed apprentices, and become involved in many fantastical adventures along the way. The characters and places described will remind you of Hogwarts, and the amazing skills of the librarians and their enemies rival those of Dumbledore and Snape! And although there are no owls in this story, there is a maniacal mongoose! Run to the library and check out this book – I guarantee your enjoyment!!!
