But he knows one thing for a fact: the Wonderland Motel is the best place a kid could ever live All-you-can-eat poolside ice cream A snack machine in the living room A frog slide A giant rampaging alligator (Okay, that last one may or may not be made up.)

"Outrageous hijinks and nonstop hilarity--five-stars Kids who check into this madcap motel will want to stay forever " --Lincoln Peirce, author of the Big Nate series

So funny I fell off my bed --Izzy B., age 10

Classic Grabenstein. The mystery should satisfy Grabenstein's "Mr. Lemoncello" followers, and the humor and visuals will appeal to fans of his collaborations with James Patterson. This new series should be a hit.--School Library Journal
