Product Description

Twelve-year-old Claudia Kincaid was the eldest Kincaid child. She was the one who did chores, who got straight-As, and who got little allowance money for all the work she did. It was unjust, and it was boring, and she was determined to change things.

Having constructed a plan to run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with her younger brother Jamie, she sets up a detailed plan of hiding out day and night in the vast halls and bathrooms of the museum. When a mysterious statue, uncertainly attributed to Michelangelo, is added to the Met's collection, both children become involved in finding out the statue's story and mystery. . . leading them to the files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. 176 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

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.

Once settled into the museum, Claudia and Jamie, find themselves caught up in the mystery of an angel statue that the museum purchased at an auction for a bargain price of $250. The statue is possibly an early work of the Renaissance master Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions. Is it? Or isn't it? Claudia is determined to find out. This quest leads Claudia to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself.
