I recently read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein. Here are the answers to Mom’s four questions.
What is the book about?
There is a new library opening and a contest is announced that 12 kids will be selected to explore the library before it opens on an overnight retreat. The way to be selected is to write an essay about what they are looking forward to seeing at the library. The kids are chosen, they go to the library, play games and then they go to sleep. When they wake up and try to leave, they find the door locked. Can they escape? Read Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s library to find out!
What is your favorite part?
My favorite part was when Mr. Lemoncello said he did not know how to escape. He said the head librarian designed the game as his birthday present.
Anything in the book that parents should know about?
There are a lot of bad words like stupid and some of the kids lie. That is what you should know.
Why do you think other kids should read this book?
The riddles in it keep people’s attention. There are different challenges and puzzles that the kids have to solve and they talk about other books that kids read like Harry Potter.
