What an absolutely delightful adventure that involves a library! The reader has the opportunity to try to solve the puzzle along with the children in the story. It is a plot that adults as well as middle grade students will find captivating. This tale has a slight hint of Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" in it. I definitely want to read more by the author of this New York Times book. It is certainly a delicious read!
