Book Review: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library

Book Review: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 29, 2013
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Mr. Lemoncello, an eccentric game maker, invites 12 students to the new librarys 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. Lemoncellos 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.

Once upon a time,   @AwesomeIvysaurGirl34   got braces. We were discussing how to stop the first bit of pain, and after a few answers, I remembered Orajel. So, Ivy asked where to find Orajel, and I said, "Uhh... I dunno... XD I think Taget?" I didn't realize that I had forgotten the R, so Ivy corrected it. At first, I thought she had never heard of Target! But then I remember seeing a Target in pretty much every state that I've visited. Moral of the story: When life gives you apples, make apple pie!
