Professional reviews

"Kudos to narrator Jesse Bernstein for his spot-on portrayals of the myriad characters in this second Luigi Lemoncello story. Bernstein sounds resolute as eighth-grader Kyle Keeley, with his moments of snarkiness, dejection, and elation; "dweeby" as Andrew Peckleman, who is much more than that; and twangy as Texan Angus Harper. They are three of the 12 kids assembled from around the country to vie in a "duodecimalthon," which features 12 library-related games. Bernstein effectively differentiates all the competitors. The story's adults--the crafty Mr. Lemoncello and Uncle Woody--can't match the collective smarts of the contestants, but Bernstein successfully plays them for laughs. Listen in for outrageous fun, book titles, and Dewey decimal numbers galore in this celebration of reading and libraries. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
