Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library
Book #5 Read in 2014
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein (YA)
This book is sort of a modernized Willy Wonka, set in a library. Twelve 12 year olds are chosen as winners of an essay contest. Their prize is a sleepover in the brand new library of Mr. Lemoncello before it is open to the public. This is no ordinary library, or sleepover for that matter. There are clues, prizes and twists and turns.
The characters are likeable (except for those who are not supposed to be liked). I enjoyed the book references throughout. This was a fun read. It contained humor, a good mystery and an interesting plot. I recommend it.
