Mr. Lemoncello, an eccentric game maker, invites 12 students to the new library's grand opening lock-in, where they each get a shot at the prize of a lifetime. Kidzworld has the book review of Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein.

The Contest

For 12 years, the town of Alexandriaville hasn't had a library. So when the grand new public library opens its doors, the library's eccentric sponser - famous game maker Mr. Lemoncello - decides to hold a competition. He invites 12 kids age 12 to experience a lock-in before the library's grand opening. But this isn't just any lock-in. The kids will get the chance to participate in the ultimate game: they must find the way out of the library - a different route from the way they came in. And the prize? The chance to star in a commercial for one of Mr. Lemoncello's games!

Team Kyle versus Charles Chiltington

Kyle Keeley and his classmates participate in a series of challenges during their quest to solve the riddle that will lead them to the hidden exit. During his two-night stay, he teams up with his best friend Akimi and a few other kids from school. After all two - or, in Kyle's case, five - heads are better than one! The only remaining boy who doesn't join his team is Charles Chiltington, whose powerful family name gives him the confidence to play the game solo. Like he says, Chiltington's never lose. But at a game like this, will Charles even have a shot? 

The Bottom Line

Chris Grabenstein, author of The Haunted Mystery series, delivers a quirky, fast-paced and light-hearted mystery. In Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library, readers can observe the clues along with the characters and challenge themselves to solve the rebus riddles before the characters do.

Post in this thread in this thread when you change your profile pic and you want people to notice it . You can also explain what your 'new' profile pic or 'old' profile pic is about, or WHY you changed it. I changed mine... it's been awhile since I changed mine... I'm gonna change it back when Bea comes back :) ( Bea Burns, Arthas, Lady Jaina Proudmoore, Arctic, Bea the Blond, Burn, Arcticburn, Arcticburn21) :) Arcticy changes her profile pic a lot.. check my wall of fame for proof!  My new one is a picture of lights! :) NOT ME! I'm not gonna upload a picture of myself when I'm 13... which is in a year :) exactly 359 days! :D  i wonder if people will recognize me. I usually look at people's profile pics, unless it's Bea. Though, they know my forum signature! LIGHTS! Love her! :)
