Maddie and Kitty love to go and read books to the children at the local library. One day Al Sal and all their animal friends decide to follow and watch. They notice that Dewey the library dog slips into a secret room. When all the children follow Dewey Maddie and Kitty have no one left to read to! Curious Al Sal and their pals set out to learn what is happening in THE SECRET ROOM!
The Secret Room was inspired by the real life Reading Dogs who do wonderful work in libraries all around America helping children to develop a confidence and love of reading. Nancy Gee was delighted to discover reading dogs at work in her own local libraries while she was doing readings for her first two books The Secret Drawer and The Secret Path and the idea for The Secret Room was born!
Nancy Gee's journey into writing started not long after an unknown animal got into her sock drawer only to be discovered by the family cat. Her grandsons loved having her tell and retell that story and challenged her to write a book.
"When I published The Secret Drawer I knew this was the start of a new chapter in my life". The Secret book series with each book based on a true event has proved to be an enormous success both in the U.S. as well as internationally.
