Floors by Patrick Carman
Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but in a crazy hotel. Each floor is different, one's full of cupcakes, another is a giant pinball game and one's a cave and you don't travel in normal elevators. Leo, the janitor's son has to solve the four puzzles and save the hotel after his friend, the owner and designer of the hotel disappears. And, yeah, always take a duck... Recommended for grades 4 - 6.
