Reviews

Praise for Floors


Carman has not only created a beguiling building but populated it with a sympathetic company of oddfellows, plus a few nefarious creatures . . . Readers will come to feel totally invested in the hotel, just as they will come to love Leo. -Kirkus Reviews


Carman delivers 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


This story will tug at the imagination of any readers with a healthy appetite for adventure. -School Library Journal


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
