The story was awesome. Well written and entertaining to read to our 6 year old. Cautionary note, there is a lot of name calling and condescending comments made by the characters. You can simply skip over those words/phrases and it doesn't impact the story AT ALL! (Wish writers could realize that)

We listened to the audiobook on a road trip and my kids (age 7 and 9) were engrossed the entire time. Another young reader indicated disappointment that the main character wasn't all that much of a reader, but we found that one of the points of the book was that he gained an appreciation for reading and libraries because of the challenge. The book was full of suspense and puzzles, but no violence or danger, so it was perfect for my younger kids. Best of all, it's all about what a wonderful resource libraries are, and how you can learn to use them, which is a great lesson hidden among all the engaging puzzles.

Kyle, the youngest of three brothers, embarks on an adventure full of puzzles where he must decide to work together with his teammates or work on his own in order to win. I completed the puzzle at the back of the book and emailed the author. I received an incredibly friendly and quick response. Any upper elementary school student would love this book as a read-aloud or simply if they are into puzzles.

A literature-loving puzzler/adventure that keeps the pages turning and the creative juices flowing in an intentionally Wonka-like trip through multimedia.

An awesome book for kids who love puzzles and mystery. This book has many strong characters such as Sierra, the shy bookworm, Kyle, the gamer, Miguel, the head library aide, and others. The characters are well developed and the concept is very interesting. You'll love this book if you like book scavenger.

Although mainly a suspenseful mystery, with clues placed in library books or from the book titles themselves, the characters are distinctive and have engaging relationships.

An entertaining and humorous story about children trying to win a library challenge that is based upon books, games, and riddles. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!

Reading this book was like watching contestants on a game show. I had my favorites, those I didn't like much, and those I couldn't figure out. The games and puzzles were so unique and exciting I didn't know what would happen next.

I read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein. It's about 12 kids playing a game for fame: they have to escape the library, but they can’t get out thru the fire exits, door or window! They have to find clues to escape! I like that it is mystery crossed with humor.
