Publisher's Summary

When Sargent Singer discovers that the paintings in his father’s gallery are alive, he is pulled into a captivating world behind the frame that he never knew existed.

Filled with shady characters, devious plots, and a grand art heist, this inventive mystery-adventure celebrates art and artists and is perfect for fans of Night at the Museum and Blue Balliett’s Chasing Vermeer.

There’s one important rule at the Beaverbrook Gallery - don’t let anyone know the paintings are alive. Mona Dunn, forever frozen at 13 when her portrait was painted by William Orpen, has just broken that rule. Luckily 12-year-old Sargent Singer, an aspiring artist himself, is more interested in learning about the vast and intriguing world behind the frame than he is in sharing her secret.

And when Mona and Sargent suspect shady dealings are happening behind the scenes at the gallery, they set out to find the culprit. They must find a way to save the gallery - and each other - before they are lost forever.  

With an imaginative setting, lots of intrigue, and a thoroughly engaging cast of characters, The Frame-Up will captivate fans of Jacqueline West’s The Books of Elsewhere.

Fabulous Book!

I loved The Frame-Up! The concept was fresh and entertaining as 13 year old Mona Dunn (a portrait) and 12 year old Sargent Singer (son of the gallery director) become friends... because the portraits are alive! Add to this a mystery and this book was superb. I could not stop listening ( I downloaded the book on Audible). I will be purchasing a hard copy of this book for my third grade classroom. Congratulations to Wendy McLeod MacKnight!
