What Kind of Book is Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library

Quotes from This Book

  • “It’ll be like the Hunger Games but with lots of food and no bows or arrows.”
  • “A library doesn’t need windows. We have books which are windows into worlds we have never even dreamed possible.”
  • “Because, my dear friends, these twelve children have lived their entire lives without a public library. As a result, they have no idea how extraordinarily useful, helpful, and funful - a word I recently invented - a library can be. This is their chance to discover that a library is more than a collection of dusty old books. It is a place to learn, explore, and grow!”
  • “And for the first time in his life, Kyle Keeley wanted to check out a library book more than anything in the world.”
