The Library Olympics is a great book. A couple teams with players all over America compete in a Mr.Lemoncello Olympics. There were 12 games. The winning team gets a free college. At the same time, Charles Chiltington's mom is forming a plan to destroy the libary. A player called Majory helps Mrs.Chiltington for a free college card without having to win. She helps them and takes some books off the shelf that were the answer to some of the games. Mr.Lemoncello feels dissapointed and canceled the libary. However the 12th game was to find the books back. There was a hint that lead them to Mr.Woodrow, Andrew Pecklemans great... long lost uncle. At the end, everyone of the players risk their college cards to a riddle. When they beat it, they found out it was all a play/ act!
This book was the 2nd best book in the series in my opinion. I was suprised to know that it was all an act. The riddles were fun and Team Kyle was great.
oops i post it twice

In “Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics,” Mr. Lemoncello invites kids from across the world for the first every library Olympics. But soon enough, they are all wrapped up in a mystery as books begin to disappear off the shelves. Was this as good as it sounds? HELLO! It’s a Lemoncello!

Hmm, where should I begin? Well, I must mention how much I enjoyed how this book was more surrounded by books. Thus, I feel like any book lover would really enjoy this one. Especially with the plethora of book title references compared to the first book. I now have some books to add to my to-read list!

The humor was somewhat sarcastic, which always makes for a good laugh. Well, at for me. :D

And what I enjoyed the most was how there was more to the disappearance of the books. Let’s just say that you will be shocked once you make it to the end. Literally, my mouth dropped to find out that there were some undertones. But, let me stop talking about the mystery before I spoil anything. ;)

Oh, and can I mention that we got a Charles number 2? Except, it was a girl instead. I enjoyed how we're presented with another “know-it-all” type of character because a balance in personalities between the characters is necessary. Also, I always like it when there’s a character that makes the reader just as annoyed as the books' characters. :D

All-in-all, I was quite pleased with this book and would give it a fair 5 star rating! But I had no doubts because HELLO! It’s a Lemoncello (you’ll understand why I say this twice once you read the book :D)! If you’re looking for a mystery to read and are up for a whimsical twist, then I’d highly recommend this book! I cannot wait to solve more riddles with Kyle Keeley in the third book!

it had a slow start but it got better. it is as good as the first book

I really liked Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics for 2 reasons:
a) It gave an exciting sequel to "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library," and...
b) It kept me turning the pages and getting me hooked on subplots and things.

It wasn't as fun as the first book but I still enjoyed it! (The whole act thing at the end was too weird.) I read through it really quickly.
I found out that the next book, "Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race", was published 3 days ago (October 10th, 2017)!!! I definitely want to read it!

This is a great sequel to Mr. Lemoncello's Library. Mr. Lemoncello is known for doing wacky things. So, why not have a Library Olympics!!! My favourite part was the riddles printed in the book. I liked it because I could stop and do the riddle. Kyle is a great team leader, He leads his team to victory even when they lost a few medals. The Twelfth game was a pretty cool treasure hunt. I loved this book and I think you should read it too! Can't wait for the next book!!!!!

A fun follow-up to Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. This is definitely a book I'd recommend for ages 8-12 to get them into realizing that reading and libraries are fun (it would also make a great read-aloud for younger ages too). The plot revolved a lot more around the characters growth, rather than just puzzles this time, so kids probably would enjoy that, although as a 15-year-old I didn't find it particularly interesting. It seems like a small effort was made into having character development, but it really showed that this is geared toward children. The puzzles were still fun though, and I really liked how Grabenstein continued with all the literary references, and even included a list of all the books mentioned at the end. While teens and adults might not find this book very engaging, this is still a great book for kids 8-12 to read on their own, or 4-7 to have it read to them by parents. It has good messages about friendship, having a good attitude when losing, being kind to people who've wronged you, and the importance of honesty and correct information.
