Book Review: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

I think Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein is supposed to be for kids. Yep, just flipped it over and the age range is 8-12. Whatever. This book was awesomely amusing and I would give my right arm to visit a library like this. Wait, I’m right handed. I would give my left arm to visit a library like this.

Kyle Keely loves games. Board Games. Video Games. Word Games. He just isn’t crazy about homework, reading, or school. So when his best friend reminds him essays to win a chance to spend the night locked in the new library before it’s open to the public are due at the start of school, he only has times to scribble “I hope you have balloons there.” LOL

As befitting a 12 year old who plays lots of games Kyle finds a way to get a better written essay into the contest and gets to spend the night in the library. Of course getting out of the library is where his skills really pay off. You have to read the book from here. I can’t possible give away the plot on a book this fun.

℘℘℘℘℘ – 5 pages – Amusing good time. It was nice to visit my childhood again. I practically lived in the boring library I had access to as a child. I would have moved in to Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.
