Publisher's Summary

Before Mr. Lemoncello became everyone’s favorite game maker, he was a kid who liked to roll the dice . . . Discover the origins of what James Patterson calls “the coolest library in the world” in this PREQUEL to the New York Times bestselling Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.

Go back to the START and meet thirteen-year-old, PUZZLE-obsessed Luigi Lemoncello!

Luigi has a knack for games and puzzles. But sometimes it feels like the cards are stacked against him. UNTIL a carnival arrives in town and Luigi gets the CHANCE OF A LIFETIME—the opportunity to work for the world-famous Professor Marvelmous—a dazzling, banana-hat-wearing barker who puts the SHOW in SHOWMAN! When the carnival closes, Professor Marvelmous leaves behind a mysterious puzzle box, along with a clue. A clue that will lead Luigi and his friends on a fantastical treasure hunt to a prize beyond anything they could imagine—if they can find it!

Can Luigi crack the codes and unlock the box's secrets? Will there be puzzles? Of course! Balloons? You bet! Will it be fun? Hello! It’s a Lemon-cello! BONUS! Can YOU crack the hidden puzzle inside?!

An enjoyable prequel for our favorite series

This is partly my review and partly my son's.

For awhile after this was released, he didn't want to listen to it. He didn't think he'd like hearing about our beloved Mr. Lemoncello as a child. But he finally broke down and agreed to listen to it, and now this has taken it's place alongside the others in the series. We loved it! It's quite different, and yet still feels familiar. And there are so many fun references to the other books to catch. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Now we can't wait to go through all the others again to connect the dots with this one. Loved it!

Might be the best one yet!

My family has listened to the entire Lemoncello series and this one was definitely one of our favorites! We are now starting the series over because we didn’t want it to end.
