But something suspicious is going on . . . books are missing from Mr. Lemoncello’s library. Is someone trying to CENSOR what the kids are reading?! In between figuring out mind-boggling challenges, the kids will have to band together to get to the bottom of this mystery.
Now it’s not just a game—can Mr. Lemoncello find the real defenders of books and champions of libraries? Packed with puzzles, clues, and thrilling surprises, this is a deliciously fun, action-packed sequel to the New York Times bestselling Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. Let the games begin!

This book was worth the wait.

How do kids know so much about libraries?!? I suppose I would have learned too, had wonderful prizes been at stake.

Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics did not disappoint. It was just as entertaining as the previous book and I was so happy to read it! The characters were colorful and the games entertaining. Additionally, it had great lessons about sportsmanship, friendship and banned books. Love it!
