Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library

When Kyle Keeley learns that the new public library was designed by his favorite game maker, Mr. Lemoncello, he knows he has to be there.  There is an essay contest for twelve twelve-year-olds to win a spot in a library lock in to try out all the awesome library features before anyone else.

What starts out as a normal lock in turns into the ultimate live action game with a fabulous prize.  The contestants have just 24 hours to solve a series of clues, be the first to escape the library, and become the spokesperson for Lemoncello's Games.

Using the library resources, Kyle quickly begins forming alliances and solving the clues.  He was born for this!  He's Mr. Lemoncello's biggest fan, and there's no way he's going to lose even with the annoying and entitled Charles Chiltington working against him.

With enough literary name dropping to stir the heart of any determined bibliophile, this puzzle mystery will keep readers on their toes as they work to solve the puzzles with Kyle and his friends.  It has a bit of a slow start, but once it gets going it's a fun mix of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Wesitng Game!  Will Kyle and his friends solve the clues and learn to love the library in the process?  Read Chris Grabenstein's new book to find out!
