I enjoyed the part of the book where the kids first ran away, and the practical details about how they lived and hid.

I wasn't very interested in the statue aspect, though, or Mrs. Frankweiler. Had she been a little more involved in the story overall, it would have helped. She felt more like a means to an end than an integral part of the story.

Another New York themed books. A delightful tale of two young runaways and their voyage of discovery.

Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running she decided not to run FROM somewhere, but TO somewhere. And so, after some careful planning, she and her younger brother, Jamie, escaped -- right into a mystery that made headlines!

I missed this one as a kid, not sure how or why. When I had to choose a "missed" book off the top 100 children's books to read for my History of Children's Literature course, this one jumped out at me because it was the inspiration for a part in my favorite movie, the Royal Tenanbaums.

Overall I thought it was great, but I would have liked a whole lot more of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Actually I would have liked a whole lot more of the whole book. :)
