I love this book even more than I loved Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library. I know my students will love it too. I've begun reading the book to the third graders when they come for library lessons. They can't decide if they want me to slow down so they can savor the story or if they want to speed up because the story is so engaging.
Any reader who loves Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will love this book. This is one of those books that just makes you feel good. There are plenty of puzzles to solve and plenty of action to keep you on the edge of your seat. And of course I love all the book and Dewey Decimal references. Even kids who think the library is boring (gasp! yes there are a few of those out there) will love this book!
It is a must for any elementary library or classroom collection. It's good for adults, too.
This book has a large cast of lively and varied characters and features games, many references to real books (including quite a few banned books), and a puzzling mystery plot (with some twists I definitely didn't foresee). It champions "freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of fun," as Mr. Lemoncello puts it.
This is a book that can be enjoyed by kids and grownups alike, as its humor appeals to all ages. It's the second book in a series, but it stands very well on its own.
Even the cover had a rip. I'm dissapointed, but we are keeping it because he really wanted to start this book right away. (The book series is amazing and your kid will totally love it)
