A Time Best YA Book of All Time (2021)

Run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with E. L. Konigsburg’s beloved classic and Newbery Medal­–winning novel From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

When Claudia decided to run away, she planned very carefully. She would be gone just long enough to teach her parents a lesson in Claudia appreciation. And she would go in comfort-she would live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She saved her money, and she invited her brother Jamie to go, mostly because be was a miser and would have money.

Claudia was a good organizer and Jamie bad some ideas, too; so the two took up residence at the museum right on schedule. But once the fun of settling in was over, Claudia had two unexpected problems: She felt just the same, and she wanted to feel different; and she found a statue at the Museum so beautiful she could not go home until she bad discovered its maker, a question that baffled the experts, too.

The former owner of the statue was Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Without her—well, without her, Claudia might never have found a way to go home.

Good

Good book not my favorite, but good

Bird and book lover ,

Wonderful!

I love this book- it's a great story, extraordinarily well written, and funny, with realistic, memorable characters. This is the sort of book that you can read over and over again, and enjoy every time. I've read it about four times, and it's definitely one of my all- time favorites. I also recommend reading other books by the author, in my opinion, one of the best.

A great book

I loved this book growing up and am excited that it's both now an ebook and that I can read it to my daughter.
