Allison Wonderland shows her friend Bob from the planet Plainold how to find a book in the library using the Dewey Decimal System. Bob is a bit of a smart-aleck but genuinely seems to learn from his friends teaching. A brief summary of all the Dewey categories is given as well as the meaning of the numbers and letters in the call number. This simple informative book also includes a glossary and website information to learn more. There aren't many books written on this subject so it is definitely worth reading despite the unattractive illustrations.
