  • This is the last episode of Season 7 in production order.
  • This episode is similar to the double-length episode Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom (both have to do with traveling through many stories in one episode).
  • Dora does not ask Map for directions in this episode.
  • This is another episode to feature Luis, Pepe, and Nelly.
  • Benny, Tico, Isa, Map, and Swiper all don't appear on this episode.
    • However, Captain Hook, the Witch, and Wolf took Swiper's place as the new antagonists.
    • However, Swiper is seen in the Season 7-8 intro.
  • This is the 157th episode of the show.
  • Dora and Boots don't sing the Travel Song in this episode mainly because they are not really traveling to places and instead are traveling through books and finding things they need to bring back to the Library.
  • When the Wolf swipes Little Red Riding Hood's basket and throws it in the tree, he acts and talks just like Swiper, but he doesn't say "You're too late!" before saying the phrase "You'll never find it now!" (which in this case, it's actually "You'll never find your basket now!").
  • This is the first and only episode not to feature Map, and one of few times where Dora doesn't actually use him this time for places both her and Boots got to go.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Dora and Boots return to where they started from.
  • The phrase "Entra al cuento/la biblioteca" means "Enter to the story/library" in Spanish.
  • This episode holds the potential for another spin-off centered on books after Go, Diego, Go! ended its 7-year run back in September 2012, but alas the spin-off isn't possible.
