I really liked Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics for 2 reasons:
a) It gave an exciting sequel to "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library," and...
b) It kept me turning the pages and getting me hooked on subplots and things.

It wasn't as fun as the first book but I still enjoyed it! (The whole act thing at the end was too weird.) I read through it really quickly.
I found out that the next book, "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race", was published 3 days ago (October 10th, 2017)!!! I definitely want to read it!

This is a great sequel to Mr. Lemoncello's Library. Mr. Lemoncello is known for doing wacky things. So, why not have a Library Olympics!!! My favourite part was the riddles printed in the book. I liked it because I could stop and do the riddle. Kyle is a great team leader, He leads his team to victory even when they lost a few medals. The Twelfth game was a pretty cool treasure hunt. I loved this book and I think you should read it too! Can't wait for the next book!!!!!

A fun follow-up to Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. This is definitely a book I'd recommend for ages 8-12 to get them into realizing that reading and libraries are fun (it would also make a great read-aloud for younger ages too). The plot revolved a lot more around the characters growth, rather than just puzzles this time, so kids probably would enjoy that, although as a 15-year-old I didn't find it particularly interesting. It seems like a small effort was made into having character development, but it really showed that this is geared toward children. The puzzles were still fun though, and I really liked how Grabenstein continued with all the literary references, and even included a list of all the books mentioned at the end. While teens and adults might not find this book very engaging, this is still a great book for kids 8-12 to read on their own, or 4-7 to have it read to them by parents. It has good messages about friendship, having a good attitude when losing, being kind to people who've wronged you, and the importance of honesty and correct information.

This is a great follow up to Escape from Mr. Lemonchello's Library. It picks up where the first left off. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves puzzles and libraries.

If you read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library you'll definitely want to read this sequel. Eight teams compete in 12 games that test their knowledge of riddles, puzzles, books and libraries...but is everyone playing fair?
