    DescriptionCharlie had his chocolate factory. Stanley Yelnats had his holes. Leo has the wacky, amazing Whippet Hotel. There's mystery and adventure on every floor. There's no other place quite like the Whippet Hotel. Each and every floor has its own wacky design--and its own wacky secrets. The guests are either mad or mysterious. And ducks are everywhere. Leo Fillmore should know everything there is to know about the Whippet Hotel--he is the janitor's son, after all. But a whole lot more mystery gets thrown his way when four cryptic boxes are left for him...boxes that lead him to hidden floors, strange puzzles, and an unexpected friend or two. Join Leo as he takes the ride of his life, without ever having to step outside. As the hotel starts to falling apart and the mystery thickens, there's only one thing Leo can know for sure: The future of the Whippet Hotel depends on him.

    Review quote
    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 Reviews "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; colorfully 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
