8-year-old Idaho boy hides his self-made book on library's shelf

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

DILLON HELBIG: I always be sneaky, like how I get chocolate.

FADEL: Librarians discovered the book, called "The Adventures Of Dillon Helbig's Crismis (ph)" by Dillon Helbig his self. But they didn't take it off the shelf. They made it an official library book. There's already a waitlist to borrow it. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
