9780060005818: Alfred Zector, Book Collector

In his warm, weathered house, stuffed in crannies and nooks, were heaps, rows, and stacks of beloved bound books.

The only thing that brings Alfred Zector joy is collecting books. And so he sets out on a mission to collect every last one, until his home on the hill is stretched at the seams with books big and small. But what happens when the rest of the townspeople have nothing left to read? In this clever rhyming story, Alfred Zector discovers what it means to find true joy in a good book.

About the Author:

Kelly DiPucchio is a New York Times bestselling author of several books for children, including Grace for President and Clink. She lives in a brick-cozy house in southeastern Michigan with her husband and three children, who aren’t so little anymore.



Macky Pamintuan is an accomplished artist who lives in the Philippines with his wife, Aymone; their baby girl, Alison; and a West Highland white terrier named Winter.

From School Library Journal:

K Grade 3—A young boy's obsession with collecting leaves the rest of his town without books, as Alfred Zector creates his own lonely, book-filled prison. After spending years and years reading everything he owns, he realizes that something is missing in his life and he begins giving his treasures away. The story ends with the greeting-card phrase, "the best kinds of books are the books that are shared." Straining to make this point interesting, DiPucchio writes in predictable rhyme, which is illustrated with flat, cartoonish artwork. A better choice about what happens when a community's books disappear is Patricia Polacco's Aunt Chip and the Great Triple Creek Dam Affair (Philomel, 1996).—Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
