Bestseller Ebook Help! I'm a Prisoner in the Library! A relentless blizzard, a spooky old mansion, a pair of lost kids...everything is here for an exciting mystery story. With the third Onetree child due to be born any day, Mr. Onetree is driving his other kids—Mary Rose (age ten) and Jo-Beth (seven)—to go stay with their Aunt Madge, when his car runs out of gas. After admonishing the sisters to remain in the locked vehicle, Mr. Onetree trudges off to a gas station through the snowfall, but the plan goes sideways when Jo-Beth needs to use a bathroom right away. The girls wander to the nearest building, with a sign out front designating it The Finton Memorial Library for Children. They quietly enter, but don't see anyone in the spacious manor. Are they alone? We know something Mary Rose and Jo-Beth don't: they aren't alone. Miss Vilmor Finton, caretaker of the library, is making her rounds preparing to close the building for the day. People weren't stopping in on account of the blizzard, anyway. Miss Finton locks up and heads to bed on the second floor without running into the Onetree girls, but they know something is up when the lights go out. The library seems spookier now, so Mary Rose and Jo-Beth hide in an exhibit, terrified of what could be hiding in the dark. They and Miss Finton still have no idea of each other's presence in the building. Jo-Beth feels positive the place is haunted, and a banging followed by an ominous moan upstairs seem to prove her right. Her older sister tries to keep calm against the notion that ghosts or witches are in the library, but being rational is harder in a dark mansion than in daylight. There's a story behind The Finton Memorial Library for Children, but not the ghastly one Jo-Beth's runaway imagination conjures. When the electricity goes out, the girls have no way to contact anyone to let them know they're stranded here, but that gives them time to learn about the woman who operates the library. They might even find a way to preserve the old mansion from becoming obsolete...which, as we read in later books featuring the Onetree siblings, is the kind of adventure they enjoy. I appreciate Eth Clifford's storytelling. Help! I'm a Prisoner in the Library isn't as cute as Never Hit a Ghost with a Baseball Bat, though there are nice moments. Jo-Beth gets carried away with her fears and fantasies, but she's creative and affectionate, the type to make even a dour librarian smile. We see this in Miss Finton's reaction when Jo-Beth finally warms up to her. "I can't think of a nicer way to start the day than to be told that you're nice and someone loves you. Thank you, Jo-Beth." Who but a seven-year-old would be so forward with her feelings, especially to someone who hasn't been expressive in return? That's part of the charm of this series. I might give Help! I'm a Prisoner in the Library the full two stars, and I recommend it for readers wanting a simple, wholesome story. Eth Clifford is good for that.

  6. Read this on a cold, snowbound night Which, in keeping with the ambience and atmosphere of the story, is perfect Some very interesting set pieces, to be sure I will admit I expected a sinister and sly and satisfying exploration of a library after hours, after lights out, after the click of the lock on the door something along the lines of The Strange Library Murakami I purchased this book in a Bag for a Buck deal at the semi annual library book sale based upon the strength of the title alone.r [...]


  7. Small little chapter book about two girls stuck in a library during a big snowstorm Very nice characterization and detail for a book only 95 pages and written for young readers The big problem though is the book is premised on some very bad advice The two girls leave their car while it s out of gas during a snowstorm to find a bathroom It turns out all right, but it s not the best way to start.It s also not the type of story I d write I picked it up because of research, and because it has a wond [...]

  9. Another example of the Kids Should Not Be Here genre See also Secrets of the Shopping Mall and From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler I m a librarian, and I ve occasionally worked at the reference desk at night, or found that I was the last person to leave the library at the end of the day, and whenever that happens, I think of this book and step a little livelier.


  10. Our girls liked this story about a couple of sisters who are locked inside a library after closing It s a little bit scary, but not overly so It s a suspenseful tale and it shows the two sisters cooperating and helping one another in their difficult predicament although of course, there are a few moments of sisterly bickering too It s a fairly fast read, with enough excitement to keep them wanting I like that it s set in a library, one of our favorite places to visit.


  11. What a cute story about two sisters trapped in a small library at night during a blizzard It may be an older book, but I think it would still have a lot of appeal to kids today I think it would be especially good for the reluctant reader with it s small chapters I m excited to have my summer book discussion group read it.


  12. Two sisters seek shelter and a bathroom in a snowstorm and are accidentally locked into a old home turned children s library The girls find all kinds of thing that seem scary in a dark building The hear a thud and a groan and shakily climb the stairs to investigate A slightly scary story for 2 3 grades.


  13. Don t read it at night to young kids However, even though it is scary for little kids, we find ourselves laughing and laughing in parts of it As I read aloud I softened a little bit of the bantering for the first 40% of the book between the two sisters


  14. i was okay.e story was sort of pathetic 2 girls get locked in the library which they think is haunted in stormy and snowy night no elctricity, no phones, no light, scary noises, freaky dolls, dead woman,


  15. Cute story about two sisters, 10 and 7, who get locked in a library during a blizzard My question is, who wouldn t want to get locked in a library in a blizzard, especially since there is a comfy couch and a blazing fireplace upstairs.


  16. I read this with the girls this past week A little bit of a mystery and a few slightly scary parts, but overall the girls really enjoyed it and couldn t wait for their nightly chapter.













  17. Two sisters get stranded in a library during a blizzard It gives you the chills sometimes, since it is seen from the perspective of the children who, alone and scared, let their imaginations take over, and that feeling is contagious as i got myself scared too i felt it was going to take a Murakami turn and go bizarre But it turns out to be a nice adventure story once it starts to unfold Dos hermanas se quedan varadas en una biblioteca durante una tormenta de nieve Te da escalofr os, ya la histor [...]
