Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library

Riddles, puzzles, books. Welcome to the world’s greatest escape game! At Scholastic, we think libaries are pretty awesome. But Mr Lemoncello’s new library is something totally new. It’s not just a place of stories – it’s a living riddle created by a master game-maker! So when Kyle Keeley wins a ticket for a lock-in on the library’s opening night, he’s really stoked. Kyle is mad about games – board games, word games and video games. And when the morning comes and the doors stay locked, he realises he’s living in one of Mr Lemoncello’s legendary riddles. Can Kyle and the other kids solve the clues to find the hidden escape route…?
