Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
Kyle Keeley loves to play games. He's not athletic like his oldest brother. He's not smart like his middle brother. But he is good at playing games. So when ther eis contest for a lock-in in the new library developed by the famous game inventor Luigi Lemoncello, he has to find a way to win. Luckily, he does. That's when the games begin . . . for they have to win the game to exit the library. And they only have 24 hours to do it.
I loved this book. It is a true ode to libraries and librarians. The whole book is filled with book references and jokes. It is also filled with games and riddles for both the characters and the reader to figure out. I would suggest this book to all kids, librarians, and children's book lovers.
