Short Story in Graphic Form

This is a strange graphic novel. More of a short story turned into a graphic book. An adult fairy tale I suppose.

It is the story of Alexandra who comes across the Night Bookmobile. She wants to become a librarian at the Night Bookmobile & so sets out to do this.

It is hard to say much about this book without letting on too much about the content of the story. Suffice to say that it is a little bit odd.  There is a question in this book about what avid readers give up for their books.

I don't suggest anyone goes out of their way to buy this book. It certainly is nothing like the books for which Audrey Niffenegger is known. However if you happen to be in a library with 10 minutes to spare then why not spend those minutes reading this book?
