From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

By E. L. Konigsburg (8)

E. L. Konigsburg classic, Newbery Medal award-winning novel, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, has endeared itself to readers with its perfect encapsulation of a childhood fantasy – a successful escape from home! Claudia Kincaid is tired of the drudgery befitted to her suburban life in Greenwich, Connecticut, and decides a desertion is in order. The sixth-grader chooses the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art as her destination, and selectively chooses, from her four siblings, Jamie to be her associate in her daring plan. Jamie’s cash retainer, and Claudia’s gumption, manages to get them to the Museum, whereupon their arrival they find themselves fascinated and intrigued by a marble statue of an angel. Having cost the Museum a measly $225, the statue’s sculptor is unknown, and the two children become convinced that the sculptor is the Michelangelo of Renaissance fame. Their further sleuthing, and the hospitable atmosphere of the Museum, lends a playful and sly undertone to Konigsburg’s beloved novel, and young readers will find the premise amusing, while older readers will be caught up in nostalgic remembrance of childhood antics.
