"At the Mallville Public Library they've seen it all. Like Naked Ned, who takes Freedom of Expression to new lengths. Or Merv, who does everything in the library but read. Or Buddy the Book Beaver, ex-con tree surgeon turned summer reading program mascot. Or the missing books that keep showing up on eBay. Or the amorous teenagers who won't take it outside. In all this chaos and insanity, who ya gonna call? Why, a librarian of course. But please - do it quietly."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)

Hilarious throughout the book and a great cast of characters. I look forward to all the wacky shenanigans and obvious questions from patrons when I become a librarian. ( )

Workplace humor, public library edition. Either only a slight exaggeration or so accurate it's hysterical. ( )

The early years of Dewey the YA Reference Librarian at Mallville Public Library, and his awesome co-workers.

The collection is all different comic strips, but one of the things that I liked best about Unshelved is that there are short little story lines for a few strips then a new, little story instead of every strip being stand alone.

I also really like the newer, rounded art vs. the older more angular art. ( )

At the Mallville Public Library they've seen it all. Like Naked Ned, who takes Freedom of Expression to new lengths. Or Merv, who does everything in the library but read. Or Buddy the Book Beaver, ex-con tree surgeon turned summer reading program mascot. Or the missing books that keep showing up on eBay. Or the amorous teenagers who won't take it outside. In all this chaos and insanity, who ya gonna call? Why, a librarian of course. But please - do it quietly.
