Morse Pond Review: The Story Thieves

I really liked this book. I would recommend this book to both boy and girls. The Story Thieves is about this boy named Owen who has always wanted to star in his own books. Owen hates the real world’s chores and homework. When he sees his classmate Bethany climbing out of a book in the library, he discovered that Bethany is half fictional and is looking for her fictional father who is lost in a book. Owen makes a deal. He will not say a word if Bethany takes him into his favorite series, the Kiel Gnomefoot series. It might help Bethany find her father or ruin the series. The Story Thieves is a fantasy book and a very good one. I could not put it down after the first page. I hope that you like this book. Happy reading!

This book is amazing! It is the best book that I have ever read! This book is a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and what Mr. Lemoncello would say, “It’s like the Hunger Games, but with lots of food and no bows and arrows.”

The book starts off with Kyle Keely playing just one of Mr.Lemoncello’s famous games Indoor Outdoor Scavenger Hunt with his two older brothers who are always better than him in sports, school and everything that comes between. Kyle gets an opportunity of a lifetime, something so extraordinary that he’ll never forget. He gets to be in the first group that will see Mr. Lemoncello’s Library for the very first time. What will happen next? Read the book to find out!

This is a fabulous book! In fact it was so good, I sat down and read it in 2 hours! Meet Kyle Keeley, the youngest of three boys, and always outshined. So when he hears that his favorite game maker, (he is also the most famous one I might add) is having a lock in at the new library he built, Kyle knows he has to be there. But what he doesn’t know is that he will have escape, and be the first one to, if he wants to win the prize. Can he win, or will the backstabbing, good-for-nothing Charles beat him? I love this book and you will too!

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein is a must-read. With an amazing setting and twists and turns in every chapter you won’t want to put down the book. You will be devestated when you are done with the book wanting more. Grabenstein does a great job of getting you to connect with his characters. This book is 100% worth reading. ~ Taylor, age 12

Note from Eight Cousins: Escape from Mr Lemoncello’s Library is like a love letter to children’s books. It is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets The Westing Game, but in what is sure to become known as “the best library ever”. EVER.  The story is crammed with fun references to children’s books old and new. Do not miss this phenomenal book!
