Praise for Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics "Discover the coolest library in the world." --JAMES PATTERSON "This action-packed sequel is sure to delight. Another winning love letter to libraries and librarians that is sure to leave readers looking at their own library in a new light." --Booklist "Dewey like this? Of course, and so will upper-elementary and middle school readers and gamers alike." --Kirkus Reviews "A successful blend of mystery, adventure, and suspense, with a sizable cast of characters, in a wholly satisfying sequel that easily stands alone." --School Library Journal "This sequel is just as much of an adventure as the first entry. Likable (as well as a few non-likable) characters, along with lots of action and quirky humor will lead kids to do just what libraries encourage them to do: keep reading." --The Washington Post Praise for Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library "An ode to libraries and literature that is a worthy successor to the original madman puzzle-master himself, Willy Wonka." --Booklist, Starred "A winner for readers and game-players alike." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred An ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book Nominated for 37 state lists and counting, including: Arizona 2016 Grand Canyon Reader Award Missouri Mark Twain Readers Award Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Georgia Children's Book Award Florida Sunshine State Young Readers Award Utah Beehive Book Award Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award Hawaii Nene Book Award North Dakota Flicker Tale Children's Book Award New Hampshire Great Stone Face Book Award Tennessee Volunteer State Book Award Ohio Buckeye Children's and Teen Book Award Michigan Great Lakes Great Books Award Maine Student Book Award South Carolina Children's Book Award Maryland Black-Eyed Susan Book Award Rhode Island Children's Book Award Nebraska Golden Sower Award Kansas William Allen White Children's Book Award Virginia Reader's Choice Colorado Children's Book Award
