Publisher's Summary

A New York Times bestseller.

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 game maker 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 listeners will become enthralled with the crafty twists and turns of this ultimate library experience.

    Story
    "Written for the young but enjoyed by an adult."
    Would you listen to Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library again? Why?

    Yes. Well read by the narrator. He gave a voice to each character, even those with accents. The children's voices sounded as such but as a personally preference I listened to it sped up because the reading felt just slightly too slow. That only served to enhance the child-like quality of the narrator's vocal technic. I did have a hardcover version of this book so I can say he describes the pictures that are sprinkled throughout the book quite well, so you won't be missing anything on that front. I personally am a big fan of books and boardgames so that was the main draw for me to this book. I laughed and the little quirks throughout and smirked when a child acted the way I remember me and some of my friends acted at that age. This book had puzzles, action, comaraderie, and life lessons all bound together. It's a good one, in my book.

    "Libraries and Boardgames-My Two Favorite Things!!!"
    What did you love best about Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library?

    I loved how the characters needed to learn, grow AND work together to achieve success. Don't get me wrong, I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and there was something of that feel here...but here the characters weren't cookie cutter-they had flaws and strengths and they grew to see those things in themselves and each other!

    "Fun story for kids who love puzzles and libraries"

    My 7 year old bookworm loved listening to this book. I enjoyed it also. Lots of fun references to all sorts of literature as the characters work to solve the puzzles to escape the library.

    "Delightful"

    I enjoyed the way the author referenced so many other books & authors as clues to find the escape from the library.
