Author Tour: Patrick Carman

Join author Patrick Carman as he tours in support of his new books, Floors and 3:15 Season One: Things That Go Bump in the Night!

9780545255196_lg[1] 51IGXKn9vSL._SL500_AA300_[1] Praise for Floors:

“Carman (the Skeleton Creek series) 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

“Carman has not only created a beguiling building but populated it with a sympathetic company of oddfellows, plus a few nefarious creatures (except the ducks, because, as readers are told, ‘Always bring a duck.’ Words to live by.) Readers will come to feel totally invested in the hotel, just as they will come to love Leo, the maintenance man’s 10-year-old son, in whose hands the fate of the rickety old joint rests when four strange boxes arrive… The author is a fine storyteller; he rides the mystery right up to the edge invests his characters with quirks that aren’t merely cute but essential to the person’s identity." --Kirkus Reviews
