My Rating:

For millennia, the Librarians have secretly protected the world by keeping watch over dangerous magical relics. Cataloging and safeguarding everything from Excalibur to Pandora’s Box, they stand between humanity and those who would use the relics for evil.

Stories can be powerful. In 1719, Elizabeth Goose of Boston Massachusetts published a collection of rhyming spells as a children's book, creating a spellbook of terrifying power. The Librarian of that age managed to dispose of all copies of the book except one, which remained in the possession of Elizabeth Goose and her family, temporarily averting any potential disaster.

However, strange things are happening, A window washer in San Diego who was blown off his elevated perch by a freak gust of wind, but miraculously survived by landing on a canopy over the building entrance. A woman in rural Pennsylvania who was attacked by mutant rodents without any eyes. And, a college professor in England who somehow found herself trapped inside a prize pumpkin at a local farmer’s market. Baird and her team of Librarians suspect that the magic of Mother Goose is again loose in the world, and with Fynn Carson AWOL once again, it is up to Cassandra, Ezekiel, and Stone to track down the missing spellbook before the true power of the rhymes can be unleashed.

5 Reasons to Read The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase
    1. You love The Librarians TV series and want more – The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase is incredibly faithful to the spirit of  television series. If I didn’t know better I would swear that I was reading the script for an upcoming episode.

    1. You’ve watched one or all three of the Librarian movies and are curious about how the TV series compares – This book will give you a great idea of what the television version of The Librarians is like. Greg Cox does an amazing job of capturing the essence of the show.

    1. You loved shows like Warehouse 13 and Eureka – I swear that Warehouse 13 is a sibling to The Librarians…so very similar in the basic story line but equally sweet and funny due to the difference in the cast of characters.

    1. You enjoy stories with an interestingly diverse (in interests and behavior) cast of characters – All of the Librarians and their guardian are such interesting and unique characters. I can’t imagine how boring this story would have been had they all been Flynn Carson.

  1. You love reads that mix genresThe Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase is a great mix of action and adventure, mystery, magic, and humor.

Bottom Line:

The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase was a quick and quirky read that will be sure to please both fans of the movies/television show and fans of fun treasure hunt type stories alike. Although in my opinion this book is better enjoyed if you are familiar with the shows, you in no way need to have any prior experience ..and you can jump in mid-series should you so desire! Cox does a great job of setting the story up and introducing the characters for those not already a part of this fandom 🙂

      It’s worth a shot Karen…but to be honest…I felt the book was 100% like the TV show…so if that didn’t work for you…the books may not either.
