      One of my favorite books is "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race" by Chis Grabenstein. "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race" is the third book of three. "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race" is a mystery book about these kids that compete against each other to test their library skills. Some of the main characters are Kyle Keeley, Miguel Fernandez, Akimi Hughes, Sierra Russell, and Mr. Lemoncello to name a few. The main characters are in a race to figure out facts about certain people.While they are searching they uncover some things to be disturbing. "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race" is like I said one of my favorite mystery book of all time. The main reason why I like this book is because there are riddles hidden inside the book for you to solve and its a mystery novel. Another reason why I like this book is because it has the perfect level of humor. If you like mystery novels that have a sense of humor then this book is for you, but I advice you read the first two books:"The Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" and Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Olympics".

        This book is all about Kyle and his fellow Board of Trustees for Mr. Lemoncello's library. Mr. Lemoncello creates a race, where you team up with a partner and follow clues left by Mr. Lemoncello and Dr. Zinchenko, the famous librarian. Whoever gave the final fascinating fact first moved on to the next round. But when, Kyle and his friends discover "Family Frolic", a game created by Erma Hershman in 1969, 5 years before Mr. Lemoncello created his first game, "Family Frenzy", they aren't sure whether to believe the gameboard or not. Kyle won't believe that Mr. Lemoncello stole the idea for "Family Frenzy" from Erma Hershman, so they embark on an adventure to prove Mr. Lemoncello is innocent. On the way, they meet the Crinkle Brothers, who hate Mr. Lemoncello, an actress, and a driver who betrayed them. Kyle will do everything in his power to stop the lies and save his hero.

            Another awesome book once again in the Mr. Lemoncello's Library series. In this action-packed book, Kyle Keeley must learn to cooperate with his nerdy partner, Abia Sulayman, while at the same time, try to dig deep into Mr. Lemoncello's past to discover if he copied a board game. Definitely a five-star! Ten-star if I could!!!!
