Lost in the Library: A Story of Patience & Fortitude

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Stevie Lewis. Stone lions Patience and Fortitude stand guard at the New York Public Library. One morning Fortitude wakes up to find Patience missing. He searches the library, encountering other artworks, and finally finds Patience in the children's room. In this NYPL-tour masquerading as a story, Funk's rhyming text occasionally stumbles, but Lewis's brown-and-tan-hued digital illustrations have cool retro flair. Information about the library is appended.
