walk to in the summer when i was a teenager when i was too young to walk there i used to be driven dropped off actually while my parents ran errands or tried to obtain the paperwork necessary for trading me in for a horse an oft used threat in my house but i grew up in those stacks making my way from the picture books to the chapter books to the adult books there not being much in the way of teen fiction when i was that age so it was heartwarming indeed for me to follow these characters as they experience the thrills of the library for the first time even though this library is way cooler than any library that actually exists with holograms of tigers and all and grabenstein is smart this is librarian bait like crazy librarians love books about librarians and books that teach kids how cool the library is and kids love fast paced books filled with puzzles to solve it s pretty much win winis is a perfect book nah the characters are pretty stock the outcome predictable and the puzzles are not as cool as those in my beloved peggy parish seriesbut it does teach kids how to use the library how the dewey decimal system works what the archives are how to ask a librarian for help and there is also a lot of trivia about literature and A LOT of book title name dropping which would have thrilled me as a little girl and would have made me take out a little pencil and mini notebook to write down each and every title so i could read those books as well nerd alertspeaking of nerd alert in this book i am totally sierra excited to be in a building full of books than playingwinning a contest curled up reading while everyone else is running around playing games yeah that sounds familiar i spent a lot of my summer camp days curled up reading under the piano while everyone else just

Read Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library 107 The new town libraryLucky 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 ar. This is a messy loud book crammed full of one note characters dizzying book references and an illogical plot There is no nuance no suspense and no character growth This is the story of a puzzle not the story of the people solving it much to the book s detriment The Westing Game would be a better choice in fact it s entirely possible that book was name dropped in this one There were so many awkward book references shoehorned into the story that I honestly couldn t keep trackAnd I m confused as to why a library would need a director of holographic imagery Just buy books

Read Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library 107 E very highIn 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 uirky characters Old fans and new readers will become enthralled with the crafty twists and turns of this ultimate library experienc. I cannot understand all the 4 star reviews and the NY Times best seller status of this book Then again most of what I find on the children s best seller list lately is mediocre junkThis is yet another rip off of Roald Dahl s immortal Charlie and the Chocolate Factory complete with an eccentric inventor and a contest only this time with a superduper library instead of a factoryHere there is one bad kid plus a few others who have their faults and while they don t meet heinous fates they all lose The winners of course are the good kids plus one who could go either way but proves to be a good kid in the end Luigi Lemoncello is no match for Willy Wonka and the endless ENDLESS insertion of book titles or references is as irritating as product placement in a movieAnd yes there is a Wonka reference but to add insult to injury it s to the movie and probably to the crappy remake with Johnny DeppUtterly utterly predictable Is it the libaryreading theme that is making all the librarians and educators kvellPS The technological references will help this book go stale in no time flatPPS Want a great book that does have a Wonka vibe in that it is about kids and a candy factory contest and isn t as funny as a Dahl book but is a lot deeper Try Wendy Mass s fabulous The Candymakers
