    When suburban Claudia Kincaid decides to run away, she knows she doesn't just want to run from somewhere she wants to run to somewhere--to a place that is comfortable, beautiful, and preferably elegant. She chooses the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Knowing that her younger brother, Jamie, has money and thus can help her with the serious cash flow problem she invites him along.

    Overall

    E.L. Konigsburg book, "From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is a brilliant book; a classic. My 10 year old son and I loved this book. This book was first published in the late 1960s and here in 2011 is being used in his school's AIG class in fun, creative, educational ways. Kids may grow up faster these days, but they are not growing up smarter. Claudia and Jamie are not only quick-witted and super smart, but they have moxie and grit you don't see in kids today (unfortunately in current day, moxie & grit have been replaced with whining and impatience). We want to read more E.L. Konigsburg works; we've been very entertained and educated. But for right now we are going to let all that we love about "Mixed-up Files" float around in us and fill us up for the time being. P.S. My mother would love Claudia's passion for grammar.
