Product description

There's no place on earth like the Whippet Hotel. Every floor has its surprises and secrets. Guests are either mad or mysterious and ducks are everywhere. If anyone knows the Whippet, it's Leo, the caretaker's son. But when he finds four strange boxes that lead him to hidden floors, he realises something extraordinary is going on. As the hotel begins to fall apart, Leo's on the ride of his life, without ever having to step outside.

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-evokingflourishes, 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 MEDIAk
