. Two girls spend an adventure filled night trapped inside the public library.. 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.
