From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Claudia and her brother Jamie are deciding to run away. And not just anywhere-why, if they ran away anywhere they'd be discovered and sent back home! So Claudia has a plan: they'll run off to where no one could guess that they were there. They'd be just two of the millions of people who walked through this place every day.  That's right: the Metropolitan Museum of Art smack-dab in the center of New York City. But the Met isn't as sheltered and safe as Claudia thinks it is: as soon as she and Jamie settle down, she realizes that they are smack-dab in a mystery that makes the front page of all of the newspapers worldwide. E.L. Konigsburg's fabulous novel will be loved and treasured as a family classic by kids AND adults for centuries to come.
