The Ninja Librarians

A story about a sword-swinging, crime-fighting ninja librarian. Nothing weird about that!

Dorrie Barnes and her brother Marcus chase her pet mongoose through their local library, they accidentally fall through a passage into Petrarch's Library - the headquarters of a secret society of ninja librarians who have an important mission: protect those whose words have gotten them into trouble. Anywhere in the world and at any time in history. 

Who knew that one overdue library book could change your entire life.  

Characters from the past including Socrates and Cyrano de Bergerac make this educational and bring history into the minds of young readers. 

The mythical element of the Petrarch's Library add that element of magic and intrigue. This is a headquarters of a secret society of ninja librarians, where the chosen ones get trained and then sent out into different time periods. 

A great start to a new adventure that is sure to capture the minds of young readers.
