All librarians love books, but have you ever met one who just ate them up . . . literally? Miss Devine does. In this adaptation of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," one Dewey Decimal diva has gone on a most unusual eating binge. From chomping down the story-hour chair to savoring the nonfiction shelf, Miss Devine is trying to chase down one particularly perfect word.

As the story, told by a wide-eyed witness, gets more outlandish, the tension builds. Children all over the library are dying to know: What combination of letters could have possibly started this absurdly all-consuming spree?
