Review

A New York Times Bestseller
Starred Review, Booklist, June 1, 2013:
"An ode to libraries and literature that is a worthy successor to the original madman puzzle-master himself, Willy Wonka."
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2013:
"Full of puzzles to think about, puns to groan at and references to children's book titles, this solid, tightly plotted read is a winner for readers and game-players alike."
"Pick up "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" for your kids to discover the coolest library in the world." --James Patterson, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author
""Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library."..is fantastic. It is one of the best books I've read, ever, and that is saying something because I am a librarian. The game, gaining understanding of the Dewey Decimal System, all the name dropping, or should I say, title dropping of so many other great books that will encourage the kids to read more, and more and more . . . it all works. I will recommend it to children and adults alike. It is that good." --Julie Forbus, Madison Public Library
