If you see a poster that says "You Can Do Anything at the Library!", it is NOT giving you permission to put on a circus! But Magnolia doesn't see any problem with setting up her own big top. She's got a lot of gusto and one mean human cannonball routine. So what if her greatest show on Earth won't fit between bookshelves? Elise Parsley's boldly expressive illustrations perfectly complement this mostly-librarian-approved guide on how to be everything BUT quiet in the library!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don't! "Magnolia's voice is wonderfully childlike... but her facial expressions top all, perfectly capturing both her exuberance and her mood swings."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't! A New York Times Bestseller
"Parsley's digitally created illustrations brim with energy and just-edgy-enough humor... and the well-chosen school-day details in both the artwork and text... deliver a steady stream of laughs." --Publishers Weekly
"Children are likely to get a kick out of Magnolia's not-quite-contrite tone and the colorful chaos her giant pet creates."--New York Times
Praise for If You Ever Want to Bring a Circus to the Library, Don't!
"Good fun to read aloud."
--Kirkus Reviews

"[It] revels in the rampage of the id-here in the form of a formidable and toothy crocodilian. Elise Parsley's jaunty second-person narration is matched by comically expressive and detailed digital artwork that seems to shout from the page."--Wall Street Journal
"This is an engaging debut picture book [that] will appeal to a wide age range. Here's hoping for more adventures with Magnolia!"--School Library Journal
"This enjoyable romp through the library with Magnolia will engage young readers and keep them looking forward to her next adventure."--School Library Journal

"Spunky little Magnolia continues to push rules to the limit and offer not-so-useful, but always entertaining, advice in her latest outing....Magnolia has to get creative when her human cannonball trick hits a snag....Though the ultimate conclusion is that circuses aren't library-appropriate, the story offers a fun way to address proper library behavior without ignoring the joy books can bring."

--Booklist


"Bright illustrations and plenty of laugh-out-loud humor."--Brightly
