Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
Twelve year-old Kyle Keeley suffers from having two overachieving, yet loving older brothers. Kyle loves games, not sports or school. When the world’s most famous game maker decides to give back to his and Kyle’s home town, he designs and builds an incredible public library for the citizens of Alexandriaville, Ohio. Kyle and his classmates are encouraged to enter an essay contest to win the chance to see the library before its official opening; the twelve winners get to go to a library lock-in. Kyle is lucky enough to be one of the winners and he and they are awestruck when they actually enter the amazing space. Mr. Lemoncello has ensured that a night in the library will be rewarding in many ways: great food, wacky games, and a tour of the library. The next day, the contestants are surprised to find themselves facing the ultimate challenge: how to get out of the library! Who will work together and who will go it alone: bookworm Sierra, brainiac Miguel, teen beauty Haley, or the insufferable Charles Chillington? Roll the dice and try your hand at this adventure that pays homage to Roald Dahl and E.L. Konigsburg. This book is the featured selection for the Page Turners book club for children in grades 3-5 at the Cumming Library on Thursday, December 4th at 4:30 p.m. Registration is recommended.
