We are excited to start up our youth book discussion group again. This month we are reading Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein.
Can twelve 12-year-olds escape from the most ridiculously brilliant library ever created?
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library plunks a dozen sixth-graders into the middle of a futuristic library for a night of nonstop fun and adventure.
In a nod to Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this fast-paced novel features an eccentric billionaire who welcomes a group of children into a fantasy setting full of weird, wondrous touches.
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library is more than a rib-tickling novel full of humor and suspense. It’s a game in itself, in which readers can have fun solving clues and answering riddles while learning how to navigate the Dewey Decimal system.
Stop by the library to sign up and order your book from Minerva. Participants are asked to read through Chapter 28 for the first meeting. Program includes a healthy snack, lively, thoughtful conversation and a craft.
With a written note from home turned in at the beginning of the day, your child may board the bus, which will bring them directly to the library. When school is not in session, due to holidays or weather, programs will not be held.
