More Library Treasure

The other day I found this creation stuck behind a bookshelf. I don't know who made it or how it got there, but the book character was instantly recognizable to me (or at least I think so). Anyone else want to take a guess? Scroll down for my own assessment.

Thank you for playing. No prizes awarded this round.
