At night, when the library is closed, the book shelves come to life. Doors and windows appear in the back of books, lights appear along the shelves, and the library is transformed into a bustling miniature city.

But on a shelf of cookery books beginning with 'Q' lives a boy called Peter, who has discovered a secret in the library - there is only one book in the world missing from its shelves, a book called How to Live Forever or Immortality for Beginners.

This is the story of Peter's labyrinthine journey through the library to discover the lost book and its secrets. Older children will especially enjoy looking for all the fascinating details in the intricate illustrations of this mysterious and enchanting picture book.
