Olivia Kidney has just moved to another new apartment building, and Olivia's the new kid in school, again. Olivia thinks she's fed up with new places . . . until she gets a look at her building! Sure, it looks normal from the outside, but inside things are crazy. There are talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunts the hallways, and Olivia finds one apartment made entirely of glass! She's meeting fantastical characters and seeing wondrous sights that make Alice's Adventures in Wonderland seem tame. But among all the ghosts and pirates and princesses, can Olivia find a friend?
