The Story Collector

Inspired by the real life of Viviani Joffre Fedeler—who was born and raised in the New York Public Library—Kristin O’Donnell Tubb’s The Story Collector is a wondrous, middle-grade mystery adventure series, featuring illustrations by Iacopo Bruno.

Mysteries abound among the library’s stacks, prompting eleven-year-old Viviani and her friends to investigate—unaware of what they just may find shelved among the books.

“A bright, whimsical story with an engaging heroine and the most perfect of all settings—the New York Public Library!”—New York Times bestselling author Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
