From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler 1968 Medal Winner ******

Claudia decides to run away from home and live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, but realizes she can't do it without bringing her brother Jamie along. Soon she's entranced with a new sculpture at the museum and its mystery. Solving the mystery might reveal to her frantic parents where she and Jamie are hiding.

I read this book in one day while in Albuquerque waiting for my dad to finish his meetings. I haven't been able to look at a museum the same way since. I felt such a connection to Claudia and even began wondering myself if I could pull off running away and living in a museum. This book really helps children with their imagination.
