Book Review: Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race

15 Jun

31226744.jpgI was so excited to get an ARC of Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race by Chris Grabenstein at BEA a couple weeks ago and bonus – I got it signed! This has become one of my favorite middle grade series for its adventure and library focused scavenger hunts. This most recent title in the series is foucsed around Mr. Lemoncello’s most recent family, fun game – FABULOUS FACT-FINDING FRENZY, but when rumors come out that Mr. Lemoncello stole his very first board game idea from a quiet, little, old lady, the kids join forces to not only win the game, but to clear their favorite game maker’s good name.

I love that as a reader, Chris drops in great titles from literature throughout the text, plus includes a complete list at the end of the book for you to enjoy. The best part for me is the puzzles and scavenger hunt style of the story which I think is very intriguing for kids and a lot of fun to read.

For educators and librarians – you can download your own library scavenger hunt from Chris’s website, he’s more than happy to Skype with classes and library groups and has a host of the great resources on his website.

Twitter Booktalk (140 characters or less): Kyle & his friends play Mr. Lemoncello’s Fact Finding Frenzy game to help clear his good name as they run, ride & fly to find the truth.
