However, when a mysterious bookmobile drives down her street, Beatrice is intrigued by the individual behind the wheel... the driver, Florence, is a librarian-of-sorts who knows exactly what books will delight each kid in the neighborhood. Beatrice is then forced to decide whether there is such a thing as "magic" or if this "librarian" knows something the rest of the world doesn't….

About the author
Hi. My name is Ryan Kelly. By day, I work as a marketing executive. By night, I write children's books about puppy dogs, fire-breathing dragons, patterns, and predictions. Kidding. Kind of. I dreamed up this idea of writing the world's first-ever children's book about data science at something we call a "hack-a-thon" while at Domino Data Lab, a week long event where employees break up into dynamic and nimble teams and think up big ideas to solve tough problems. But, to tell you the truth, I didn't write this children's book to just encourage the next generation to get passionate future careers in data science. No. I wrote it because I wanted to encourage the next generation to get passionate about problem-solving. Because, well, let's face it, our world is full of them and the future of humanity will rely heavily on those with the willingness (and passion) to solve them.
