This was one of my favorite books as a child because it featured my favorite art museum as well - The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met). And the best part about Claudia and Jamie's run away adventures is they get to stay over night at the museum, solve a mystery and earn the respect of the reclusive and mysterious Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

Even time I go to the Met, I entertain thoughts of hiding myself away in a bathroom stall just like Claudia did so I could stay the night too! Of course, the security guards are well aware of this book and throughly check all the bathrooms at closing every night.

This book for young people won the Newbery Medal. A girl and her younger brother run away from home to a museum and solve a mystery. It has a clever plot and is well-written, and I appreciate the fact that the author was not out to rub a child's nose in death and misery in the name of being relevant to modern youth. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it less than stories that have more humor and maybe a touch of fantasy or imagination in them.

Classic childrens book that is almost more enjoyable for grown-ups! two children run away from home and hide in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. All sorts of historical asides and insight into human nature all wrapped up together in a charming book. After you've read it, go visit the museum!

One of the best books for an 11 year old girl I can imagine. And if yoy're not 11 anymore you may love it too. Especially if you like funny books about adventure in NYC!
