Charlie had his chocolate factory. Stanley Yelnats had his holes. Leo has the wacky, amazing Whippet Hotel.

The Whippet Hotel is a strange place full of bizarre and mysterious people. Each floor has its own quirks and secrets. Leo should know most of them, he is the maintenance man’s son after all. But a whole lot more mystery gets thrown his way when a series of cryptic boxes are left for him, boxes that lead him to hidden floors, strange puzzles, and unexpected alliances. Leo had better be quick on his feet, because the fate of the building he loves is at stake, and so is his own future!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Imagine The Westing Game mixed with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory amped up with Patrick Carman creating the craziest hotel in the world. Now add ducks. And a pocket-sized robot that won’t stop talking. Floors is just the fun, crazy mystery you have been looking to solve.”

    Jon Scieszka, New York Times bestselling author

  • “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

  • “Leo jumps into an adventure-filled, suspenseful quest through secret rooms on hidden floors…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

  • “Beguiling…The author is a fine storyteller; he rides the mystery right up to the edge and invests his characters with quirks that aren’t merely cute but essential to the person’s identity.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Young Leo is a likable hero, and it’s a treat to spend time in the fascinating hallways of the Whippet Hotel.”

    Children’s Literature

  • Recommended for the 2011Parents' Choice Award

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joshua | 2/13/2014

    " Almost 5 stars but starts off a but slow... Then its one part jeremy fink, one part Willy Wonka... The ending in particular was very wonka... Almost beyond homage, and a little obvious to this Wonkavite, however for part 1 of a series, this had a good ending which was refreshing. "

    " Really good. If I could, i would rate it 300 stars out of negative 300. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. Bought it at a book fair and it was a good price and ended up being a fun read. I originally bought it for my nine year old to read but she didn't seem interested, so I picked it up and read it. It has fun characters and quirky rooms/floors in the hotel. A great twist at the end. I was laughing outloud on a few parts. I would recommend it to anyone with kids from third grade up. I can't wait to see how book two (if there is one) turns out. "

    " A great adventure/ mystery story for middle grade readers. Whimsy and humour, suspense and ducks all rolled together in one book. "
