Did I enjoy this book: After reading Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, I had to dive into this book. I really enjoyed this read as well, not quite as much as the first book, but it was still great.
We are back with Kyle Keeley and his friends, the champions of the library escape. They have now been challenged to a library olympics against teams of kids from across the country. Mr. Lemoncello devised another fun set of games, but as always, there is a twist. I did like the twist at the end of this book.
This story was fun and kept me reading from beginning to end.
Would I recommend it: Sure! I loved the first book, and this was a great follow-up. I can’t wait for book 3, Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race.
About the book – from Goodreads: Welcome, boys and girls, readers of all ages, to the first-ever Library Olympiad! Kyle and his teammates are back, and the world-famous game maker, Luigi Lemoncello, is at it again!
