Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls, and she doesn't like to skate. What she does like to do is read books. And now that she's grown up, her collection has gotten so big all the shelves are collapsing. Her front door has disappeared entirely. What in the world will she do? The reclusive Elizabeth Brown surprises everyone with her splendid solution.

In charming verse and elegant watercolors Sarah Stewart and David Small celebrate one of America's oldest pastimes and grandest institutions.
