Title: Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s library

Author: Chris Grabenstein

Collection:  Juvenile Fiction

Kyle Keeley is the class clown, popular with most kids, (if not the teachers), and an ardent fan of all games: board games, word games, and particularly video games. His hero, Luigi Lemoncello, the most notorious and creative gamemaker in the world, just so happens to be the genius behind the building of the new town library.Lucky Kyle wins a coveted spot to be one of the first 12 kids in the library for an overnight of fun, food, and lots and lots of games. But when morning comes, the doors remain locked. Kyle and the other winners must solve every clue and every secret puzzle to find the hidden escape route. And the stakes are very high.

This book has been aptly described as a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Night at the Museum.  Readers will immediately connect with the story and will have no problems using their imaginations to sort out the puzzles, contraptions, and situations they face when locked in the library!  An instant classic.
