SummaryAdd a Summary
It’s time for the children’s storytime in the library, but something – or someone – is missing. It’s not the children, or the books. It’s the librarian, Ms Merryweather …. who is never late!
The children decide that she must be missing and they begin to search the library for clues. What they find is quite surprising: footprints which look more like paw prints, an overturned jar of sticky honey on the librarian’s desk, and a couple of shredded books. What’s going on?
Suddenly, they look up and see … a new LIBEARIAN!
The new liBEARian – who really does look very much like a bear - isn’t interested in reading a princess story or one about knights and dragons to the children. However, he’s very happy to read them a scary story … about bears, complete with some loud growling, roaring and stomping.
The children, thoroughly frightened, love it!
Just then, Ms Merryweather arrives. Without noticing the new liBEARian, she begins to read “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” to the children. But wait! Baby Bear is missing from the story … until Ms Merryweather realizes that he has stepped out of the book and is in the library. In fact, he is the new “liBEARian”!
When Baby Bear returns to the book, Ms Merryweather continues to read … until everyone realizes that someone else is missing from the book!
Who could it be?
This clever, imaginative story about the magic of stories is sure to enchant young listeners.
