Willy Wonka Meets Night in the Museum

bookcover
Author: Chris Grabenstein

This book is for gamers!  Imagine being locked in a new library that was designed by a very famous gamemaker.  Winner who can decipher clues and find their way out gets rich and famous!  Mr. Lemoncellos has been the benefactor in Kyle's town and has built them a new library.  They have not had one in 12 years, so twelve 12-year-olds are selected to play the ultimate game of being locked in the library.  This was a quick, fun read.  I'd like to devise a similar game for a lock-in at a local library.
