Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race by Chris Grabenstein - ADVISABLE

Grabenstein, Chris Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race, 288 pages.  Random House, OCT 2017.  $17.  Content: G. 

Mr. Lemoncello has more tricks up his sleeve..  He wants to send out ambassadors to introduce his latest 3D technology to children all over the US.  In order to choose the ambassadors he has devised a contest, of course.  When the teams are on their way to the final challenge they stumble upon something that gives them pause.  Did Mr. Lemoncello copy his first, iconic game from another inventor?  Instead of finishing the game, Kyle and the others are determined to uncover the truth – even if it means the end of their favorite adult.  Meanwhile, the Chillington family and the Krinkle brothers are waiting to watch them fail.

Happy Day!  Grabenstein has another clever book to the puzzle-mystery genre.  He also has plenty of room to include more books in the series, though I ‘d love to see a different type of plot – as Mr. Lemoncello always seems to be the one in danger from the same antagonists.
