Mudshark

Paulsen, Gary
The Mudshark is the coolest guy on campus, and hangs out in the library answering people's questions and solving problems, like figuring out where Willamena left her brain. And where all the erasers disappeared to.

Quote:

She was brilliant and joyous and she believed--probably correctly--that libraries contain the answers to all things, to everything, and that if you can't find the information you seek in the library, then such information probably does not exist in this or any parallel univese now or ever to be known. (pg. 18)
