About the book:  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.

Review:  What fun! What fun! What fun!  The Field of Wacky Inventions by Patrick Carman is an amazingly fun book to read and filled with great imagination.  This is the final book in “The Floors triology” by Mr. Carman and it is as exciting as the first two.  I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and am a little sad to see it end.  While targeted for upper middle school and higher, anyone who just wants a fun book to read would enjoy this series and in particular this last book.

To say I enjoyed it is an understatement.  Highly recommend!!

  1. I am SO looking forward to reading this series. The setting and the premise looks like a really good read. I bought a copy for a friend's kiddo's bday, but never got a chance to read it myself. Thanks for sharing a review at KidLit BlogHop this week.
