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 strange 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 Leo’s own future!

    My mom and I got this book from the library. She feels that it is still very important to read to me even though I can read well. We both loved it and couldn’t put it down. It took us 3 sittings to read it. Can’t wait to get started on the next one. Please keep writing more adventures, we will be looking forward to more books. Thanks.

  21. Amy says:

    I just want to say THANK YOU!!! I am a librarian & my daughter is not nearly as into reading as I was at her age. I despaired of ever finding a book or series to ignite that reading passion in her until she found Floors at her school library. She stayed up late to read, she read it during math class, she ignored TV to read it. When I got home from work the other day, her big news was “Leo got the hotel!”. I looked at her blankly until I got it-she was so engrossed that Floors had become part of her day. Thanks so much for writing such an engaging series. Keep them coming please!
