Description

The charming and spirited Lottie Paris is back—and she loves the library!

Lottie Paris has a favorite place. The library! She loves to go there and read about space. She knows there are rules at the library, but sometimes they are not so easy to follow.

The library is Carl’s favorite place, too. And he loves to read about dinosaurs. When Lottie and Carl meet, they become fast friends. Now Lottie reads about dinosaurs, and Carl loves space!

After joyously introducing Lottie Paris in Lottie Paris Lives Here, Angela Johnson and Scott Fischer have created a brand-new world for Lottie to dream in—alongside a brand-new friend.
