Publisher's Summary

In this intricate, magnificently imagined sequel to Blue Balliett's international best seller, Chasing Vermeer, supersleuths Petra and Calder, along with Calder's old friend, Tommy, are cryptically drawn into another art mystery, this time involving a Frank Lloyd Wright architectural masterpiece, the Robie House.

When the kids' sixth-grade class attempts to save the Hyde Park landmark from demolition, eerie events are reported: Voices float out from within, shadows shift behind the art-glass windows, even the roof moves! Suddenly, a well-meaning art restoration project turns into a frightening search for ghosts, hidden treasure, and a coded message left behind by Wright. In this tangled web where life and art intermingle with death and danger, can the kids pursue justice and escape with their lives?

Audible app doesn't play well with iPad or iPod

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I liked the book but the player didn't work well so I stopped listening

What did you like best about this story?

Don't know really

Any additional comments?

The audible app did not work well withmy iPad nor my iPod. I tried several ways to fix it. Why aren't all of your books available through the iTunes store?<br/>
