Young Stella loves books so much they take over the farmhouse. "Why, Stell, you need your own library to hold those books," her pa tells her, so he and the neighbors build her one!

She calls it the Mermaid's Purse. Stella invites all her neighbors to share her books, and in time everyone loves the Mermaid's Purse, even Pig Ears Lonsberry and farmer Dunkle. So when a tornado destroys it, scattering Stella's precious books far and wide, the whole community rallies to help.

Based on the life of beloved artist Patricia Polacco's own amazing grandmother, this celebration of reading and community is as exhilarating as it is heartwarming.
