Read this unique mystery to find out about friendship, art, and the power of knowledge.
I loved the style that Blue Balliett used to write Chasing Vermeer.
Can you imagine working on a mystery that even the FBI can’t solve?
In Chasing Vermeer, Petra Andalee finds a book about odd occurrences that completely captures her interest and makes her start thinking.
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 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.
Both the boy and the sculpture seem out of place..then they dissapear!
Kyle Keeley is the class clown, popular with most kids, (if not the teachers), and an ardent fan of all games: board games, word games, and particularly video games.
I'd say this is a book you'd want to take your time with and keep aware of any possible clues that may come up.
The illustrations have a lot to offer in telling the story and providing possible clues.
