Meet the Author

Olivia's father cannot hold a job. He is constantly being fired from his building superintendent jobs, which means that he and Olivia are constantly moving. Olivia hates moving. She hates the feeling of being in a new home, and not knowing what sort of place it is. And as she stands with tattered suitcase in hand gazing at the formidable brownstone building in front of her, Olivia is about to enter the strangest place of all—a home where the entire first floor is underwater, with furnishings lazily floating along in a peaceful lagoon and where no one ever visits during the day, but at night all sorts of people constantly come and go. What strange secrets could this place be hiding? In this second in a series about Olivia Kidney, Potter has created a quirky world in which nothing is as it seems. It is fun, it is silly, at times hilarious. It is a world that is totally implausible, but the story is fresh and exciting, and Olivia Kidney is a character that kids cannot help but love. 2005, Philomel Books, Ages 8 to 12.
