* STUDENT REVIEW *

Leo is a maintenance boy at the fantastic Whippet Hotel, run by Merganzer Whippet. Mr. Whippet is a wacky inventor and lover of ducks. Leo spends every day surrounded by the robot room, the cake room, the pinball room, and many others. He caters to all the unique inhabitants of the whippet hotel, including a writer, a captain, and a former socialite, and even 6 ducks, but most of all, the dreaded Ms. Sparks. When Merganzer Whippet disappears, Ms. Sparks starts taking over the hotel. Leo heads off on a wild goose chase, or rather, a wild duck chase, all instrumented by Mr. Whippet himself. Can Leo save the hotel before it's too late?

If you enjoy books full of whimsy, you might also like The Candy Makers, by Wendy Mass or the Gollywhopper Games by Jody Feldman.
