    I have to say, I quite agree with Mr. Murry#. Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library kept me in suspense the entire time I was reading it!

    I love this story! I love it when it describes the library. The story kind of reminds me of Charlie and the chocolate factory. I really like the creativity and how the kids have to find clues. I think it is a great story and I recommend it.

    I liked how they went up to the third floor and they found the room and fought over the book they needed. Then one of the librarians comes in the room she yells at them for fighting over the book.She said don’t do that thats like fighting another human.

    OMG I love this book. It was so cool and I want to read it like 1000,000,000, times even though it took me like two hours to read half the book. I’m just going to be that guy and make you do the math. Ha ha ha if you like to do the math you are smart. Kyle is really dumb and the only kind of pants he wears is skinny jeans. Maybe he should go buy some sweats. Anyway Akimi was really weird and she was smart just like Einstein. Kyle isn’t smart because he broke a window just to win a game. Really, dude; I mean, why would you do that? Anyway it was a really good book and I recommend it.

    I love Mr. L’s L because They get locked in a strange moving library and have to stay there overnight.I think people should do this in real life!

    You should check with your librarian. I bet if you could get the library to move strangely, your librarian would be willing to host a sleepover! — Kate Davie

    This book is awesome!!! I love it. It is so creative and nobody could possibly look this far into the future as Chris Grabenstein and I am a huge fan of every book you have. And I also love how you designed every ones personality in this book like Haley as a sassy girl and Mr.Lemoncello as such a goofy, goofy guy. You need to read this book, I highly, highly recommend it, you should vote for it, this is my favorite DCF.

  15. Hermione says:

    I think Mr. Lemoncello’s library is full of a lot interesting stuff that a normal library probably wouldn’t have. It’s amazing how many clues you have to find to be able to escape from the library. I think it would be fun to imagine yourself in the library trying to escape yourself.
