Plan YOUR Escape

July 31, 2013

We’re so thrilled by the success of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, an instant New York Times bestseller from award-winning author Chris Grabenstein. One part Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one part From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, with a dash of puzzle solving through in, it’s just a flat-out fun, exciting read, and filled with Chris’ signature clever, kid-friendly humor.

There are so many ways to introduce your readers to this great story: there’s a study guide available, and(!), if they solve the final puzzle featured in the book they can win two sets of Chris’ books—one for themselves, and one for their favorite library.

Even better, Darrell Robertson, one of the Children’s Services Librarians at the Finksburg Branch of the Carroll County, MD Library System helped design a game that libraries everywhere can adapt to get their patrons engaged and having a blast this summer.
