Every book-lover's dream. A mystery you have to solve in a library using your knowledge and research skills? Awesome! It was a super fun book, and I really enjoyed reading it. It wasn't without flaws (looking at you, character development), but overall it was a good book. I loved all the literary references. Not exactly a deep-and-thoughtful read but if you're looking for a light-hearted book, it's a great, quick read.

This book was amazing and i loved it. This book was a real page turner. I always wanted to know what happens next. This book had me using my brain and trying to figure things out. For example, they had to do a rebus. I was trying to crack the code and figure out what it meant.

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!!

I used this novel as a book club book with a group of grade 5 and 6 students. The book was interesting, although I didn't love it, but the kids absolutely did! Many of the students read the book far faster than I had seen them read before because they couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend Escape for Mr. Lemoncello's Library to any kids aged 10 and up.

I just LOVE this book! The moment I started reading, I just could not put it down. It is a book of fun, fantasy, and of course, adventure. I would hands down recommend this book if you like the topics above and/or if you have read and enjoyed The Gollywhopper Games. If you have read this book I would recommend The Island of Dr. Libris (which uses even more imagination) and The Gollywhopper games (which has a similar plot). Please try this book! It's AWESOME!!
