From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

In this classic Newbery Award winning novel, twelve-year-old Claudia Kincaid is restless -- she wants to do something different, such as running away from her comfortable suburban life in Connecticut for a while. Claudia knows that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running she decides not to run FROM somewhere, but TO somewhere -- her own secret live-in at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. And so, after some careful planning, she and her younger brother, Jamie, escape -- right into a mystery that makes headlines!

Description Review

After reading this book, I guarantee that you will never visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art (or any wonderful, old cavern of a museum) without sneaking into the bathrooms to look for Claudia and her brother Jamie. They're standing on the toilets, still, hiding until the museum closes and their adventure begins. Such is the impact of timeless novels . . . they never leave us. E. L. Konigsburg won the 1967 Newbery Medal for this tale of how Claudia and her brother run away to the museum in order to teach their parents a lesson. Little do they know that mystery awaits!
