Description-

  • Kyle Keeley is the class clown, popular with most kids, (if not the teachers), and an ardent fan of all games: board games, word games, and particularly video games. His hero, Luigi Lemoncello, the most notorious and creative gamemaker in the world, just so happens to be the genius behind the building of the new town library.

    Lucky Kyle wins a coveted spot to be one of the first 12 kids in the library for an overnight of fun, food, and lots and lots of games. But when morning comes, the doors remain locked. Kyle and the other winners must solve every clue and every secret puzzle to find the hidden escape route. And the stakes are very high.

    In this cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and A Night in the Museum, Agatha Award winner Chris Grabenstein uses rib-tickling humor to create the perfect tale for his quirky characters. Old fans and new readers will become enthralled with the crafty twists and turns of this ultimate library experience.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books bella1111 - Your going to want to hear this review and then read this book. The book I read was called "Mr.lemoncello's LIBRARY" it is by Chris Grabentein, and it is great. The settings of this book are the library and sometimes the school. The library is the most common place. So this kid named Kyle Keeley loved Mr.lemoncello's games and books so he decided he wanted to enter a contest to win a trip to his library. What you have to do to win is write an essay so that's what Kyle did. When the winners were announced Kyle ended up being one of them. What he doesn't know is that he will have to try to escape and deal with other kids in the library that try to cheat and go the easy way, that is the turning point in this book. The antagonist of this story in my opinion is all the other kids because most of them want to do Different things. The protagonist is Kyle. There are a few parts when Kyle figures out something important like ways to get out of the library and parts of the library like the windows that don't open and those were important things to figure out because he was trying solve the conflict. I liked this book because it had lots of details and it wasn't boring. I recommend and this book to anyone who likes adventurous books. I recommend this to 6 grade and up because it has some difficult words that some kids wouldn't be able to sound out. I hope you try this book out.

    Librarians and English teachers will happily recommend this adventurous romp from Grabenstein (the Riley Mack books), which pays playful homage to books and libraries while engaging readers in a fast-paced competition involving research and reasoning skills. Twelve seventh-graders win a chance to spend an overnight lock-in previewing their town’s new public library—it’s a marvel of technological delights conceived by Luigi Lemoncello, the Willy Wonkalike founder of Mr. Lemoncello’s Imagination Factory, which is a source for every kind of game imaginable. During the lock-in the winners, who include game-lover Kyle Keeley and a group of multicultural classmates with a mix of aptitudes and interests, are offered a further challenge: “Find your way out of the library using only what’s in the library.” The winner will become spokesperson for the Imag-ination Factory. Book lovers will relish the lavish sprinkling of book titles and references while puzzle fans will enjoy figuring out the clues. A lighthearted parody of reality survival shows, the book reinvigorates the debate over the Dewey Decimal system and traditional library skills while celebrating teamwork, perseverance, and clever wits. Ages 9–12. Agent: Eric Myers, the Spieler Agency.

  • James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Pick up Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library for your kids to discover the coolest library in the world."
  • Julie Forbus, Madison Public Library "Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library...is fantastic. It is one of the best books I've read, ever, and that is saying something because I am a librarian. The game, gaining understanding of the Dewey Decimal System, all the name dropping, or should I say, title dropping of so many other great books that will encourage the kids to read more, and more and more . . . it all works. I will recommend it to children and adults alike. It is that good."
