Wednesday Book Review — What’s New on My Nightstand: “A Box of Awesome Things Matching Game” & “Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race”

October 25th, 2017

There’s something so satisfying about matching games, and this one from Wee Society is pretty cute. “A Box of Awesome Things Matching Game” is not your typical match-match card game. (Ages 3-103, $14.99.) The pairs include argyle socks, confetti, tacos and… yellow! Pluto and lava, fireflies and helicopters. Really fun. In case you’re wondering, un-awesome things such as pinkeye and cavities are not included. :)

Mr. Lemoncello is something like Willy Wonka, without the snark. He’s a good guy, filled with ideas and whimsy, and he sometimes get in over his head. And that’s what the kids are for. They ride in to the rescue and the adventures begin. “Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race” is the latest title in this series by Chris Grabenstein. (Random House, New York, 2017, 279 pages, $16.99.) The book reminds me of “The Candy Shop War,” filled with candy-colored images and lots of actions. The pictograms are a lot of fun. I think this one will be another hit with young readers.
