Everyone’s favorite game maker, Mr. Lemoncello, is testing out his new FABULOUS FACT-FINDING FRENZY game!

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!

      "Ready, get set, lemon, cello, go!" Mr. Lemoncello's Library is back in this exciting third installation to the series! Kyle and his friends have been challenged to Mr. Lemoncello's brand-new-first-ever board game without a board, Fabulous Fact-Finding Frenzy! Now, if you know Mr. Lemoncello, you KNOW his games are anything but ordinary. This one is no different. It includes the Library's new historical holographs that Kyle and his friends have to travel all over the country to find facts about! The winners will win fame, glory, and a paid tour with Mr. Lemoncello around the globe to bring the holographs to different libraries, PLUS a new floating-emoji game Kyle is dying to get (and that game-maker competitors Krinkle brothers are willing to sneak, steal, and bribe to get their hands on)! But Kyle soon finds a suspicious board game that shows Mr. Lemoncello's exact first game... made 5 years before Mr. Lemoncello's game first came out! Is Mr. Lemoncello a fraud and a copy? Kyle and his friends are going to have to put their newly-acclaimed fact-finding skills to the test to find out the truth. But it's going to take teamwork and determination. Can they find the truth and save Mr. Lemoncello? Or is Mr. Lemoncello going to become Mr. LemoncellNO? Read this amazing book to find out! I really enjoyed this book! It was jam-packed with laughs, puzzles, adventure, and fun that kept me hanging on to every word! I rate it 5 stars and for kids 7+. This book is, as Mr. Lemoncello would say, "Is it fun? HELLO! It's a Lemoncello!"

          The third book in the Lemoncello series was the most adventurous one. I really enjoyed the travelling parts for the game and the crazy mystery of the library's shutdown. This was my favorite one of the series and one of my favorite Christmas gifts. Why? Hello, it's a Lemoncello!

                This is a good book series, but it gets kinda boring fast.
