Riley Mack's First Review

I always love reading what Lesa Holstine has to say about any of my books. Here's what she posted on her blog about RILEY MACK AND THE OTHER KNOWN TROUBLEMAKERS


It doesn't matter if Chris Grabenstein is writing adult or juvenile mysteries; his books are a hit. Now, he's launching a new juvenile series designed for readers in grades three to seven, ages eight to twelve. Forget those ages, though.... Read more of this blog post »

“A library doesn’t need windows, Andrew. We have books, which are windows into worlds we never even dreamed possible.”

“I figure when you come to a crossroads, you have a choice: right turn, left turn, straight ahead. Or you can just pull over to the side of the road and call it quits. But if you've got a good stretch of road up ahead and someone fun to travel it with, why stay stuck in the galdern ditch?”

“Books need to have their spines cracked, their covers opened, and their pages ruffled for them to come alive.”
Chris Grabenstein, Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics

“Because, my dear friends, these twelve children have lived their entire lives without a public library. As a result, they have no idea how extraordinarily useful, helpful, and funful - a word I recently invented - a library can be. This is their chance to discover that a library is more than a collection of dusty old books. It is a place to learn, explore, and grow!" -Mr. Lemoncello”
Chris Grabenstein, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library

“An open book is an open mind" -Charles Chiltington”
