#1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Grabenstein is back with the third fantastically fun, puzzle-packed MR. LEMONCELLO adventure!
On your marks. Get set. Lemon, cello, GO!
Everyone's favorite game maker, Mr. Lemoncello, is testing out his new FABULOUS FACT-FINDING FRENZY game! If Kyle can make it through the first round, he and the other lucky finalists will go on a great race--by bicycle, bookmobile, and even Mr. Lemoncello's corporate banana jet!--to find fascinating facts about famous Americans. The first to bring their facts back to the library will win spectacular prizes! But when a few surprising "facts" surface about Mr. Lemoncello, it might be GO TO JAIL and LOSE A TURN all at once! Could Kyle's hero be a fraud? It's winner take all, so Kyle and the other kids will have to dig deep to find out the truth before the GAME is OVER for Mr. Lemoncello and his entire fantastic empire!
Filled with brand-new puzzles and games (including a hidden bonus puzzle!), this fast-paced read will have gamers and readers alike racing to the finish line because, like Mr. Lemoncello's commercials say, IS IT FUN? . . . HELLO! IT'S A LEMONCELLO!
Oh my gosh I love this series SO much! It is so much fun - libraries, and mysteries, and puzzles and riddles! In the third Mr. Lemoncello Library book we are back at the library with the crazy Mr. Lemoncello and his board- the kids from the previous books. This time they are competing in a race to research facts and the winners will get to travel with a new holographic library exhibit. While they are competing the rival Krinkle brothers are up to something and it does not seem good for Mr. Lemoncello. The kids find themselves having to dig up the past in order to save their idols name and business.
These books are so much fun as I have already noted. I fly through them and I love trying to solve the riddles and clues before turning the page. The adventures are creative and educational and they are put together in a way that doesn't make it overly obvious that you are learning as you read. In this story we learn about the Wright brothers, Abe Lincoln, and even Michael Jordan. It was really a blast of a book to read and if you haven't picked up this series yourself or for your middle grade reader - you really should!
