[Forgot to write a review at the time. I remember liking this, but not much else about it. There is a third book in this series as of October 2017.] ( )

Sequel to Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. This time, instead of a local group of children, kid teams from all across America compete in an Olympic-style setting for medals related to book-based puzzle and competitions. Fun literature references made throughout competition. Excellent moral lessons made, but not too preachy. ( )

I liked this second book a lot… maybe even more than the first? I felt like the puzzles and games were more involved, or perhaps just better written than the first book, because I felt very into the story. There was some suspense, and it will definitely engage middle grade readers. ( )

For Sunshine Cavalluzzi, Sid Reischer, Stacey Rattner, and all the awesome parents, teachers, and librarians who do so much to make reading fun.

And in memory of Rosanna Macrina, the longtime librarian at P.S. 10 in Brooklyn, who inspired so many children and one author who was very lucky to have met her.

Just about every kid in America wished they could be Kyle Keeley.
