There’s mystery and adventure on every floor in bestselling author Patrick Carman’s delightfully wacky Floors trilogy!

Now that Leo has uncovered a few secrets behind the wacky Whippet Hotel, he’ll have to save it!

Leo has explored the zany, wonderful Whippet Hotel from basement to top floor, with trains, flying goats, and mazes (among other things) in between. But even Leo doesn’t know every secret of the Whippet — and when he discovers that there’s more beneath the hotel than he’d thought, it doesn’t take long for more adventures to unfold!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Floors:

" Carman has not only created a beguiling building but populated it with a sympathetic company of oddfellows, plus a few nefarious creatures . . . Readers will come to feel totally invested in the hotel, just as they will come to love Leo" —Kirkus

" Carman delivers a madcap mystery reminiscent of Roald Dahl and Ellen Raskin, complete with bizarre inventions, a mystery involving a missing billionaire and his fortune, and even a crazy elevator or two." —Publishers Weekly

" This story will tug at the imagination of any readers with a healthy appetite for adventure." —School Library Journal

" Mixing mystery; colourfully drawn, offbeat characters; and some Willy Wonka–evoking flourishes, this series starter offers an absorbing, entertaining read with an appealing and sympathetic protagonist. Fantastical inventions and humorous scenarios abound, but the story also sensitively explores themes of loss, healing, and family." —Booklist
