        Things were all great for Kile Keeleigh after winning Mr. Lemoncello's escape game. But soon after other kids around the country started to say that they could have beat Kile and his team if they had the chance. Mr. Lemoncello did not tolerate people thinking he was unfair, so on the first day of spring he launched the first ever library Olympics. The Olympics would consist of 12 games and the team who won the most games would win.All of the events before event 9 went fine, and Kiles team is tied for first place with his main competition Majorly Major’s team. But then books started to disappear off the shelves and with that Mr.Lemoncello's happiness disappears too. Can Kile and his team find the books and save the library or will Mr. Lemmoncello abandon his library? Find out in Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics By Chris Grabenstein. I give this book 5 stars because I enjoyed the puzzles and challenges that started the Olympics. I think this book’s reading level is 3rd through 5th grade because it is pretty long at about 300 pages but is not super long that it will take months to read. I think anyone who enjoyed Escape From Mr.Lemoncello's Library would enjoy this book because this is the sequel to that book.

          One of the greatest sequel to any book series! The characters have seemed to change, but Mr. Lemoncello still is playing games! You will be amazing by how many tricks are up his sleeve this time.

            This book captured me in it's wonder-filled pages. Kyle is such magical character! His amazing spirit helped his team through the 12 works of the master mind, Luigi L. Lemoncello. Some challenges are played by Akimi or Miguel. Some are played Sierra or Kyle. But all could be won Marjory. She was book royalty like Team Kyle wishes they could be. The only match for Marjory was Sierra. But in the middle of a challenge to debate for, more of Mr. Lemoncello's precious books are stolen, giving Marjory the crown. Can Team Kyle over-come this cheater and a book disaster?

                  In this second installment of Luigi Lemoncello, Kyle's friends are up to a new challenge. This time, they have to win a library competition against bookworms around the nation. But they have stiff competition and the games get harder every round! Not as good as Book 1, but still cool.

                    I loved this book and I really enjoyed it. The book is about a boy named Kyle Keeley, who in the previous book, won Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Escape game, and is now staring in Lemoncello advertisements. But right after Haley Daley, one of the team members, moves to Hollywood, Mr. Lemoncello anounces that there will be another library game, called The Library Olympics... only this time, it will include kids from all across America, including Marjory, a child prodigy from Michigan. But suddenly, books begin disappearing from the shelf’s, and Mr. Lemoncello looks like he is about ready to give the library up to ‘the League of Library Lovers’ led by millionaire Mrs. Chillington, the mother of a losing competitor. I loved this book. You should defiantly read it.

                      The thing I like about this books that is refreshes your knowledge from the previous book, and that it also gives new characters and new perspectives. Happy reading!
