His hero, Luigi Lemoncello, the most notorious and creative gamemaker 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.

I liked this book so much!
I think "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" is now one of my favourite books. My favourite character was Sierra Russel and (naturally) I disliked Charles Chiltington the most. I liked that the "players" teamed up. The story's about 12 children who, by looking for clues in the books and exhibits, has to escape from the world-famous gamester, Mr. Luigi L. Lemoncello's new library. (The library sounds really amazing -- I wish there was one near me...)
It was neat how the author refers to lots of well-known books, and how the reader can try and piece together the riddles too. I will try to figure out the puzzle Chris Grabenstein mentions in the author's note! I listened to the audiobook read by Jesse Bernstein and I think that's very nice as well!
Highly recommended to all book, game, and puzzle/mystery lovers!!

love this book

I usually screen books before passing it down to my kids. I could not put this book down. It was very engaging. Full of mysterious twist and turn. This is a book that all kids can relate too, about a game, about prizes, the excitement of finding clues, how to value all friends from different background and knowledge, and of course about friendship. My son (10 year old), carried this book everywhere for 2 days. Loved it!
