I believe this book that I’m going to recommend is perfect for those who is still studying, who wants to go back to school for those who loves library a lot.
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein
The first time that I encountered this hard bound book, I had a doubt if I should buy it. First, because it was a teenage book with no love story, I like library stories, but I became disappointed with the last book that I purchased and finally, the price of it was 199 php only. I let it go for a while yet when we met again in a different bookstore; it meant that I was destined to own one copy of it.
Kyle Keeley is a big fan of Lemoncello’s games. When he learned that the famous game maker is going to rebuild and designed their town’s newest library, he is determined to be one of the ‘lucky’ guests to enter and see it for the first time.
The most challenging part: Getting in is the easiest part, getting out will take a lot of wit and luck.
What I like about the story:
The Essay contest and the ‘Golden’ Pass… Have you read or seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? When Kyle won a ticket to enter Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, I remembered when Charlie received one of the chocolate bars with a golden pass. The essay that Kyle submitted was short but the sentiments that he wrote were too real.
Mr. Lemoncello and his Awesome Library! Luigi Lemoncello is a smart man who recreates an old library into a fantastic and up to date setting where students and kids at heart would surely read and hold real books.
Keycard, Games and the Ultimate Winner! I love how each game was created, the given clues were incredible and how the winners determined in each accomplished task. Each 12 participants are given unique key cards that can be used as their access in every room in the library, but the keycards as had an important purpose of the last challenge. There could only be one winner, which will be famous! Go #TeamKyle!
Dr. Yanina Zinchenko to the 12 participants
“Our thoughts are safe when they are inside a library. Not even a bank robbery can disturb them.”
“A library doesn’t need windows. We have books, which are windows into worlds never ever dreamed possible.” – Well said! I agree too!
How It Ends:
Lodgepole, Loblolly, Rocky Mountain White, Dandy and 16 words from 16 letters in 60 seconds!
This book makes miss visiting a library so much like the quietness of the place, the excitement of browsing and looking at the shelves for a particular book and the smell of new books. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library book take the library into another level, which I hope most of the local and public library should adopt to so that kids, especially Millenials who grow up with gadgets and just one click away to the world wide web will appreciate library and make it closer to their hearts.
