This book was amazing! Loved the different rooms and all. Debt like the use of the word b**t or another minor cuss word, but otherwise, it was wacky and fun! ( )

Leo and his handyman father live and work at the magnificent Whippet Hotel. The hotel is completely unique. Each room has been carefully crafted by the eccentric Merganser Whippet, whose fanciful ideas appeal to the rich, odd, and famous. Merganser knows all the ins and outs of his whacky hotel, but he's been missing for months now. When Leo takes the hotel ducks (yes, ducks) up to the roof for their daily walk, he finds a strange box with directions for solving the mystery and saving Mr. Whippet. Since he only has two days, Leo seeks help from the new doorman, Remi. Together, they embark on a wild adventure, while still trying to get their jobs done, as neither wants to anger the mean manager, Ms. Sparks. They need to find a total of four boxes, and each box contains a piece of the puzzle. Do Remi and Leo have what it takes to work together to solve the mystery? Who is the mysterious person that's creeping around the hotel rooms leaving clues for Leo? Everything at the hotel is breaking at once and either the hotel misses Merganser or someone is tampering with everything. What is going on? Follow along with Leo and Remi as they travel throughout the Whippet Hotel on a wild ride to uncover the truth.

Floors by Patrick Carman is a fantasy adventure that will appeal to your imagination. Reading about the fascinating hotel rooms made my mind soar with possibilities. I would love exploring the hotel and checking out the various rooms- one room is devoted to cakes and sweets, which are replenished daily. Yes, please! Leo and Remi are both loners who build a fast friendship. They have some opposite character traits, which help them to get along, and it was great to see how they reacted to each other. It was also fun trying to figure out what the different boxes meant, and, as I knew so little about the hotel, I was pleasantly surprised once the mysteries of the hotel were revealed. I recommend this book for kids in fourth through seventh grade. Anyone who likes a story where anything is possible will enjoy the first case in the series. This book reminded me how important creativity is, and if we dream it, it can become a reality. At the end of the book we learn that there is more in store for the dynamic duo, and I look forward to seeing where their future investigations take them.

A wild mix of mysterious hotel, a cranky manager, a missing owner, an adventure to discover hidden secrets by two young boys, oh, and ducks... never forget the ducks... make for a roller coaster adventure that youngsters will enjoy. No need to fear political or social agendas here, it's just rollicking fun mixed with a bit of mystery and suspense. ( )

What a fun and wacky read! Not since my days of Roald Dahl have I fallen this in love with a story line. The Whippet Hotel is a place built out of the imagination of a very interesting man. Merganzer Whippet, the hotel's designer, was told that he would one day invent wacky things! If this hotel is any indication, that's completely right. From a room with edible furniture, to one that is built just like a pinball machine (that you can PLAY!) this is a hotel that I would be happy to stay in! I think middle grade readers will fall in love.

When Merganzer Whippet goes missing, it's up to Leo to solve the mystery of the hotel. There's something to be said about a young, brave protagonist. Leo is smart, kind, and adorable the entire way through the book. I loved how Patrick Carman built his relationship with his father, and with the other characters in the story. It's easy to fall into step with Leo as he sets of on a zany adventure through the hotel. You'll find yourself cheering him on, and wondering what fascinating thing he is going to find next!

If that's not enough, the other characters in Floors will definitely sate your need for silliness. Each one has their own unique personality (and in the audio book their own voice). They mean well, but each one has a pretty interesting set of quirks. After all, doesn't an amazing hotel need equally amazing people to inhabit it? It's so much fun to read about their daily lives, and see how they fit into the overall mystery. Kudos to Patrick Carman for writing such a wonderfully vivid cast of characters.

I see this as the type of book that is going to fly off your library shelves. Or, if you have a young reader at home, one that they'll beg you to read over and over. There is so much to love in Floors! Silly, fun, and just downright wholesome. This is the type of stuff that Middle Grade stories are made out of. Definitely recommended!

This book for tween boys is full of adventure and mystery. It is based in the Whippet Hotel, an exotic hotel geared for the rich. The main character, Leo, works for the hotel alongside his Dad. When Leo finds the first box, it starts him on an adventure throughout the hotel and the floors between the floors. For parents, there is none of the violence that is found in some other adventure series books for this age group.
