FTC Disclosure: I received a free advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. However, I also ordered three copies for my library and and a finished copy for myself. And that should tell you how this review is going to go. I love this book even more than I loved Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library. I know my students will love it too. I've begun reading the book to the third graders when they come for library lessons. They can't decide if they want me to slow down so they can savor the story or if they want to speed up because the story is so engaging. Any reader who loves Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will love this book. This is one of those books that just makes you feel good. There are plenty of puzzles to solve and plenty of action to keep you on the edge of your seat. And of course I love all the book and Dewey Decimal references. Even kids who think the library is boring (gasp! yes there are a few of those out there) will love this book! It is a must for any elementary library or classroom collection. It's good for adults, too.

It was a good book for people who do and don’t like libraries. I say that because Mr. Lemoncello adds a really fun twist on the library and just makes everything fun. The olympic aspect of library is weird yes, but it’s really awesome seeing people working together and against each other. This is an amazing book for anyone (at least that’s my opinion). I honestly think that this is better than the first book but again, that’s just me maybe. I like how in the first 2 books they aren’t just in the library and go around into different places. Again, if you hate libraries and think that they are really boring and not fun, this is a really fun and cool twist on every library. I would recommend this book to anyone. Yes it is kind of long but it’s worth it. I don’t like how they didn’t give a background story for the characters. An example of that is when they introduced someone after a chapter.I really like how he knew how to make the library, a place usually boring for me, but he knew how to make it hi-tech and sound amazing. Honestly, this is a really fun book and is great for people that do and don’t like libraries. But in the end, I think this is an amazing book for anyone, definitely a 4.5 out of 5.

When kids all around the world feel cheated that they weren't able to participate in the Mr. Lemoncello's games at the Library, he opened up a Library Olympics for all children all over the place to take the chance to beat his library game. Kyle Keeley is still feeling the grips of being a winner, he just now feels devastated to try and beat smart, Library loving kids from all over the globe. But Kyle finds out fast that it is not just the kids he needs to beat. There are parents and adults that are now coming around and causing havoc, not liking nor enjoying the concept of having games at a Library. It is unethical and needs to be stop!!! Really people?!?! Libraries is about finding what you like and express yourself freely about it as well as games. So why not put the two items together? Apparently some parents don't feel like that is ideal for this community and they will try anything to stop Mr. Lemoncello and his Library Olympics from happening. Literally anything. Another amazing book by Mr. Grabenstein about Libraries, children, gaming and how to fit all of them together and still have amazing fun while learning about literature.
