When Josh and his family move into Tilton House, they are unprepared for the weirdness of the house.  First of all, the floors tilt, precisely three degrees inward.  Second, there are strange scientific equations written all over the walls. Third, there are rats - talking rats to be exact. Things get even more mysterious after Josh uncovers the diary of the house’s previous owner. As Josh and his brother attempt to unravel the mysteries surrounding their new home, they get to know their neighbors and they decide that their weird new house might be just right for them. This book mixes the comedic and the weird and throws in a dash of mysterious growing powder to keep the reader hooked until the last page.   (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
