It’s wacky! It’s weird. And therefore I love it! An actual action figure of a librarian. The model is based on a real live person. Since I am Dutch, I have never heard of her. You might! Nancy Pearl is the woman who modelled for the doll. She travels the United Stated to speak about her love for books. You can read the story about it here.
Nancy comes in a ‘normal’ and a ‘deluxe’ version. The normal version comes with the doll dressed in a blue suit (5 inches tall, 12,7 cm) and some books. The books include “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, “More Book Lust”, and “The Darwin Awards”. When you pull her arm down and press the button on her back she says: “Shhh!”.
The deluxe version also comes with the doll, this time in a red suit, and books. But it also includes a book cart on which you can place the books. There is also a miniature computer included, so she can reference your search. The company also has action figures of famous writers like Dickens and Shakespeare.
