Synopsis: The humor and heart of Modern Family meets wacky contests in book two of this series, which asks: What could be more fun than a fun house?
 
A local theme park called Funland is hosting a huge contest to turn one family’s home into the ultimate fun house. Who wouldn’t want a slide from the bedroom to the backyard, a bumper-car kitchen, or a ball pit for a living room?
 
The Talaska family is eager to compete! And the stakes are high. Their house is falling apart, and they might have to move away from Piedmont Place forever. Cal knows that his family can win, but it won’t be easy. First he and his sister, Imo, need to win a competition at school. Then the whole family has to live at Funland and find a hidden object. Can they really search every corner of the park in just five days? There’s only one way to find out. Let the contest begin!
