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!

    I was required to read this book for a college class. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it. I began to tell one of my 6 little girls about some things in the book. My 5th grade daughter can not wait for me to get through so she can read it. She said “Oh, that is so cool, don t tell me any more and I want to read it.” I hope you continue writing interesting books for our children to read to expand their imaginations!

    I really hope that they make a 4th book.
