3. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library is a middle-grade contemporary story about a 12-year-old boy named Kyle. He feels as though there’s nothing special about him. He has a wise older brother and an athletic older brother. One thing about Kyle is that he loves games, and his favorite game maker of all time is Mr. Lemoncello. So when he hears that Mr. Limoncello is building a library in his community, he wants to check out this library because it won’t be any other one.

So Mr. Lemoncello and his fellow library creators plan on having 12-year-olds spend the night in a lockdown to celebrate the library’s opening. Kyle and some of his friends are lucky children selected to spend a night in the library. So when they go to the library, they realize they will stay there much longer than they bargained for.

Mr. Lemoncello locks them in the library and tells them they must find their way out. He left a bunch of clues and hints and stuff like that. So they have to go on quests and scavenger hunts and use their mystery detective and uncovering skills to find clues in books and various parts of the library.

There are holograms and mannequins of all dead authors who walk around and talk. There are all crazy technology and impossible things, so I consider this literary book fiction. You have some of Kyle’s best friends, like Miguel, Ikimi, and Sierra. Sierra is a fascinating character.

Then you have Charles, another kid in the library who’s arrogant and stuck up. You have Haley, who’s this snobby rich girl. So this book is the breakfast bunch meets Charlie, and the Chocolate Factory meets Scooby-Doo. You get to see them talk about The Hunger Games and Land Of Stories.

4. A Wrinkle in Time

Like Land Of Stories, A Wrinkle in Time is a sci-fi book. You’re whisked off on this magical journey through time and space to save Meg and Charles Wallace from the impending black thing trying to suck the life out of everything. It is horrifying, and it’s consuming everyone and everything we love.

We go to all of these different planets. We meet all of these different beings, these alien-type things. These three women, Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, seem to know everything, and there’s something very mysterious about them.

It’s all rooted in this story of this girl being different from everybody else and learning that what makes her different and stands out from society makes her great. Her most significant faults are her greatest strengths; you will love seeing that throughout the book.

We see that with Meg and Calvin, who come along for the ride. We also see that with her little brother, Charles Wallace, a very odd five-year-old who talks in complete sentences. He is intelligent, and he might read people’s minds.

5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Sorcerer’s Stone is filled with so many classic Harry Potter scenes. When Harry is at the zoo for Dudley’s birthday and talking to the snake for the first time, the glass disappears, and that’s the first view of Harry’s magic. Twenty years of Harry Potter was released, and after all the books had been published, J.K. Rowling tried to push the fact that Slytherins are not all evil. They’re not all bad, and they can be great wizards too. Even Ron explicitly says, “There has never been a witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin.”

In Sorcerer’s Stone, when Malfoy and Harry meet for the second time on the train, Draco tries to be nice to him cause he knows it’s Harry Potter. Jo constantly sets us up for an expected reaction. He was using internal and external factors to establish that this would be a challenging, negative moment for Harry. Still, as it turns out, he is the youngest Seeker in a century and is asked to play on the Gryffindor quidditch team.

We learn throughout the series that Hogwarts has protective enchantments. That’s why things with electricity don’t work at Hogwarts. You can’t apparate in or out of Hogwarts. So why can they fly onto the grounds like that? A critical point in their security?

Nearing the end of the story, after Ron, Hermione, and Harry have figured out the stone is what’s being protected inside Hogwarts, it’s in the third-floor corridor. They’re confident that Snape’s going to steal it. They go after Dumbledore to tell him, but they catch McGonagall. This part of the story frustrates me because McGonagall is dismissive of them. You must give it the first chance if you like Land Of Stories.
