Synopsis: In Book 1 Kevin and his friends escaped Mr. Lemoncello's Library and became product spokesmen for his products. But, kids all over the country are crying foul. They are sure they could have beat Kevin and his friends if given a chance. So, Mr. Lemoncello creates the Library Olympics where the biggest booklovers of the USA are chosen to compete against Kevin and his team to become Library Champions.

My rating: 5/5

I have to confess that my rating is mostly because the book is so much fun to read. This is a well written enough book but for me it was my personal enjoyment that lends itself to a five star rating.

Like the first book, this book is just written for booklovers. It references so many books I am familiar with and concerns that are on book conscious people's minds. I don't want to delve too deeply into this because it could move into spoiler territory but I will say that banned books play an important role in the story and I could not have loved how that was handled more.

As with the first, this book has a very Willy Wonka vibe to the fun. I would even say more so this time than last. These parallels led me to guessing the books twist early on. Though that did not in any way impair my enjoyment of the book. I loved what the twist was. It was really fun and well done.

One thing I will mention is that this series should be read in order so you should not read this one before the last one or many elements will not make sense.

There were more characters in this book but since I knew the characters from the last book I didn't feel overwhelmed by the new ones we meet. The cast is fairly large though because you have so many people competing. Only a few become important enough in the game for us to really get to know though. But that is one reason I would not pick this book up before reading book 1. There are just too many characters if you don't already have a grasp on who is who.

The only thing negative I will say about this book was that the start was a bit slow. I wasn't as interested in the stuff leading up to the Olympics as I was in the actual Olympics. So, the announcement of the Olympics and the choosing of competing teams made the pacing in the start of this book a bit slow. But, once I got past that I was totally invested in the book and loved it enough that the first little bit of the story being slow was forgivable.

I highly recommend this series to book lovers and especially for children who are around 9 or 10 and obsessed with books. My kids are a bit young for it now but it is a series I hope we return to when they get older. ( )

Welcome back to Mr. Lemoncello’s library. A new batch of games are about to begin. The kids from the original game arel back, but some people in the nation are upset. They are upset that they did not get a chance to take place in the original escape, because they know for sure that they could have won. Why should the Hometown team get all the accolades, commercial contracts, and special libraries?

There has been so much public comment, that Lemoncello brought the games back and made it a national effort. Now 8 teams of 4 from across the national will converge on Alexandriaville, Ohio, to prove once and for all, who is the best librarian olympian. Even better? The winner gets an all expenses paid college scholarship to anywhere they want to go (and new girl Marjory Muldauer knows exactly how much her Harvard tuition will be).

But all the teams better be careful. The League of Concerned Library Lovers (headed by Chillington’s mommy) is out to stop the games, and turn the library into a stuffy place full of only “approved” books and silence. And there are some team members who think that is how it should be as well. A library shouldn’t have fancy technology, holograms, or educational video games, only books that fit into what certain people think should read.

Overall I really like this book and enjoy the adventure. Kids appreciating books and learning. Plus the author name drops other authors like they are his best friends (and all us readers know that books can be your best friend). The book is pretty predictable. If you have read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or seen the Gene Wilder version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, you pretty much know how this will play out. This story is all about the ride and this ride is enjoyable.

The only things I don’t really care for is that part about the League of Concerned Library Lovers and their views. It’s not for their views, its for their supposations. As a librarian, I realize that library law in other states differs from that of Illinois and Colorado, but I can tell you this. If this library was in Illinois, the LCLL would be easy to handle. Since Mr. Lemoncello pays for everything in the library, the staff, etc, himself, the library is a publicly open private business or non-profit. That means that a group like the LCLL would have no chance to take it over and make it how they want. Just because “public” is in the name, does not in essence make it a “public” library. This would be a privately endowed library, that can create its own rules and be as crazy, and fun as it wants to be.

That is the only thing I can think to say bad about this book. And it’s not wrong, it just may be that I am adult in the library world, who knows that not all states have the same rules, payment scheme, etc for libraries. So therefore I am grieving adult stuff, and this book is meant for kids.

But hey, just because it’s meant for kids does not mean adults will not enjoy it too. This would be a great read aloud for any age. And with a full list of every book mentioned within in the pack, you will have plenty of suggestions to keep you and your little readers busy all year long.

Plus, don’t you want to find out if the Hometown Heroes win? ( )

This is the sequel to Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library, and although it fills in the gaps if you haven't read the first book, it is definitely worth reading both of them. My 10 year old read them and loved them and passed them on to me. They are aimed at a younger audience, but are both fun books for library lovers of any age. In this book teams are compiled from all over to compete against the local winners from the Escape game in events that test their knowledge of how libraries work. But there are mysterious forces at work - people plotting against the library. Once again, friendship and teamwork are major themes in the book. And it pushes the imagination as far as what libraries can be used for. Mr Lemoncello's library sounds like an awesome library to have around.

[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. ( )

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.
