This book is five stars all the way! My langauge arts teachers read this aloud to us at school and I absolutely loved it! Very quirky, funny and well written, with expertly dropped hints and clues for readers to puzzle out on their own. When seventh grader Kyle Keeley hears about the new library opening up in his hometown of Alexandria, Ohio, he is not very impressed. In fact, he decides not to enter the library lock-in essay contest at all- until his best friend Akimi mentions that Luigi Lemoncello, Kyle's favorite game creator, is behind the new library. Then, Kyle hurries to scramble up an essay to win the contest. The contest: the twelve students who write the best essays get to spend the night in Mr. Lemoncello's library. And when Kyle and Akimi are two of the twelve students selected, they're in for an adventure worthy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and A Night In the Muesum. Because when they wake up, the doors out of the library are locked. What follows is a super fun contest of wits, as Kyle, Akimi, and ten other seventh graders scramble to find the clues and piece them together to try and find the way out of the library. I think the best part of reading this book was afterward we had a skype session with the author! We had a contest in my class similar to the contest in the book: We had to write an essay saying why we should be able to talk to the author. Twelve students were selected to be pulled out of class to Skype with Chris Grabenstein himself! I was pleasantly surprised to be selected as one of the students to talk to Mr. Grabenstein as I am a huge fan of this book! I would recommend this to anyone, especially fans of reading mystery books! Even if you don't think you will like it, just pick it up and try!

Okay, so maybe not the world. Or the universe for that matter. But it still is one of my favorite books of all time. It is so fun, funny, and mysterious. Also adventurous. I recommend this book to anyone who can read. Please read Escape Frome Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstien ASAP!!!!

A fun story for children of all ages (even if it is geared towards younger kids). The story is most resembles ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ where children win a contest to stay at a new library overnight which then becomes a contest to find an alternate way out. The story is full of book references and teaches the importance of libraries to the community. A nice story if you’re looking for something light.

Chris Grabenstein has done it again. This book is aimed at younger readers (YA in library jargon) yet the books works at all levels for an adult reader. Mr. Lemoncello has built and designed a library for the children of his hometown. Working with books and technology it is a very unique place. There are holograms and a "wonder dome", flat screen tvs and computers. When there is a challenge for the 7th grade class to be the first to visit the library a small group wins time in the library. The twist is that they can get in, but it is much harder to get out. The one who does win also gets some amazing prizes. Kyle Keeley enters and wins along with several other 7th graders. There are puzzles and scavenger hunts and a very strict set of rules. I loved this book and plan on reading it again soon. The first time through i was hurrying to follow the clues so need to spend some time savoring the writing that defines Chris Grabenstein. Much as I love his Ceepak books I must admit, I also look forward to his books for younger readers almost as much.

OK, I was thinking that this would be a great book since people loved it, but I have to say, this book was just to make things more educational. The way I saw it, its just stuped to make the maine plote aboute a library!? It was too cheesy for me. But I still think it was a good book. Not the best book, but a good book.
