  • PALACE OF BOOKS written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco is a true story that Polacco lived when she was a child in Battle Creek Michigan. She was introduced to the work of John James Audubon by the Willard Library librarian Mrs. Creavy. This enabled Polacco to develop her visual artistic skills while struggling with dyslexia. The book is beautifully illustrated with all colors of birds front and center. This picture book is for readers 5-8 years of age.
