Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

22 Jul

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of Chris Grabenstein’s book, Escape from Mr. Lemocello’s Library – what more could you want? A library that is also a puzzle with plenty of clues, children’s book references, and enough action to keep you turning the pages to the end!

16054808Kyle Keeley loves to play games – board games, card games, and video games.  When he finds out that 12 children will spend the night at a lock-in in the new library designed by famous game-maker Luigi Lemoncello, Kyle knows he has to be one of those 12!  What follows is action and adventure as the 12 kids find clues, work together, and learn about each other as they figure out how to escape the library!

My favorite character had to be Mr. Lemoncello himself, the author used so many children’s book references when Mr. Lemoncello talked and it was so fun to read!  The characters were well developed and puzzles were a lot of fun to try and figure out along with the characters, and I must say, the description of this library makes me green with envy!  I’d love to visit or have a library like that of my own!

This is a great story for kids who like puzzles, mysteries, and action all rolled up into one!  And if you can find a kid who loves to read, they’ll definitely get a kick out of the book titles sprinkled through out the book.  This is a must read!  Take a look at the book trailer on YouTube to learn more about it!
