David Zeltser is the author of our feature book from our August Picture and Family Boxes. The Night Library (beautifully illustrated by Raul Colon) has been described as The Polar Express meets The Night at the Museum. It’s a wonderful adventure about the magic of books and libraries, with a little help from the lions that guard the New York Public Library. David’s other books include Lug, a middle grade novel series and picture books Ninja Baby, Stinker, The Universe Ate My Homework and Codzilla.
