If you haven’t read Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein I highly recommend it! I loved this book! It reminds me of books by Roald Dahl! In fact, Mr. Lemoncello is much like the eccentric Mr. Willy Wonka. Imagine Charlie and The Chocolate Factory but instead of Chocolate you have board games, elaborate clues and books all set in a fantastic dream library! Yes, book lover or reluctant reader this is the book for YOU!
And speaking of fantastic dream libraries: After reading this book my new life goal is to become a billionaire… then I can create magical dream libraries everywhere, similar to the one found in Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.
The book made me think about what I would include in my dream library if I could create one like Mr. Lemoncello. I thought of 2 things I would include right off the bat! First, I would have to have the best and most cherished librarians work at my dream library! I would of course ask all my Nerdy Book Club librarian friends to work there! Can you imagine a public library with all the amazing librarians from Nerdy Book Club?
Secondly, my dream library would have to have secret passageways and doors that lead to secret rooms and book cubbies. I think that would be a book lover’s dream! I know I would love it! Check out these secret passages from an article at Book Riot!
