I just reread this book because I saw there were no reviews on it.

It's very similar to The Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler, except I actually liked this one better. There are more twists in the plot and surprizes along the way. It's about a girl who was in the museum when a valuable Degas painting is stolen. She thinks she knows who did it, and does her own detective work to track down the thief. When she meets him, she also meets her prejudices and makes a special new friend. Then she and her brother track down the real thief. A great read!
