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

It's not every day that a hotel loses its top floor. Then again, the Whippet Hotel is no stranger to wackiness. So when the entire floor is hoisted into the night sky by a nearly invisible airship, Leo and Remi know they're in for the ride of their lives.

But little do the boys know just how amazing their voyage will become. They are headed to the field of wacky inventions, where they will have to compete against a number of foes for an incredible prize.

It will take all of Leo and Remi's bravery, skill, and burping power to decode the outrageous puzzles hidden among the floors of Merganzer D. Whippet's newest and most peculiar construction. But they must - because if they don't, they'll lose their beloved Whippet Hotel forever.

Editorial 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
