If you have ever wondered whether librarians have a sense of humor, wonder no more! What Would Dewey Do? - a compilation of the library-related comic strip Unshelved - chronicles the exploits of Dewey, the Mallville Young Adult Librarian.
As everyone knows, everyone is welcome at the public library. In Mallville this includes: Merv, the precocious and somewhat delinquent teenage boy; Buddy the Beaver, the library mascot (Who knows who the Las Vegas-Clark County Library mascot is?); and a nudist lawyer, among many others.
- the FBI visiting the library
- kids practicing diving off the bookshelves
- the mobs with pitchforks wondering why the Internet isn't working again
- and "What's the hardest question you were ever asked?"
I highly recommend this book--forward written by Nancy Pearl, a librarian who modeled for her own action figure!
