What's a librarian not to love about this modern-tale Willy Wonka twist, where instead of candy, the children are enticed to find clues within a fantastical public library? Grabenstein has certainly polished up his Dewey Decimals and this librarian, for one, is delighted that he has. Pure delight! ( )

A delightful romp that disguises a lesson in library organization. For the grand opening of the Alexandriaville library, a group of kids is selected to participate in a grand new game--escape from Mr. Lemoncello's library using only your wits and the information contained in the library. Could you do it? A good book club possibility.

Reminiscent of Willy Wonk, Luigi Lemoncello creates a contest for twelve-yearly olds who have been deprived of a public library their whole lives. A master game inventor, Mr. Lemoncello creates the ultimate game as he challenges the contestants to discover clues and escape from this extraordinary high-tech library. This novel makes reference to numerous children's books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 037587089X, Hardcover)

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.

In this cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and A Night in the Museum, Agatha Award winner Chris Grabenstein uses rib-tickling humor to create the perfect tale for his quirky characters. Old fans and new readers will become enthralled with the crafty twists and turns of this ultimate library experience.
