From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running away...so she decided not to run FROM somewhere, but TO somewhere. And so, after some careful planning, she and her younger brother, Jamie, escaped -- right into a mystery that made headlines. Join them in their adventures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and find out how this story ends!
This is one of the most wonderful books for children, after reading go and visit your local Natural History Museum, even better, visit New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
