The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase

We rated this book:


From mutant rats to a woman waking up inside a pumpkin, strange occurrences are happening around the world. Colonel Eve Baird and Librarians Ezekiel, Cassandra, and Stone discover that the Mother Goose Treaty has been broken, with a rogue Mother Goose on the loose with destructive plans. With Flynn missing – as usual – the Librarians must split up to find the three parts of the original book of rhymes, leaving each of them on their own to solve a piece of the puzzle before they can be used against the world.

Fans of the TNT show will enjoy Greg Cox’s attention to detail, capturing each character’s personality and introducing an array of eccentric side characters. The adventure is perfectly suited for the quirky tone and has a unique spin on nursery rhymes. Cox features a lot of the chaotic and fun elements from the show: a cursed treasure chest eating gold, a lion fighting an unicorn for a crown, and a pleasant twist at the end. Cox brings a wonderful blend of charm and humor, clearly having fun with The Librarians’ trademark campy style.
