The Field of Wacky Inventions: 07/21/14
The Field of Wacky Inventions by Patrick Carman is the conclusion of the Merganzer D. Whippet trilogy. Leo and Remi have flown with the top floor of their hotel to a far away field where they are met by the top floors of a number of other Whippet hotels. Mr. Whippet has one last challenge for all his hotel managers and whomever comes out the winner will inherit his entire hotel business.
Leo and Remi are the only children Merganzer has brought on as hotel managers. Leo, in fact, is unique because he actually owns his hotel. As you can imagine, some of the others aren't happy competing against children who already appear to be Merganzer's favorites.
As with all things Whippet, the challenge is a mechanical one. The different floors can fit together into a new hotel. Although, it might be more of a death trap than a proper hotel!
The Field of Wacky Inventions is a departure from the other two in that the Whippet hotel is no longer the focus. I guess this one is more of a Glass Elevator than a Chocolate Factory.
