Description

Written and illustrated by E.L. Konigsburg

When Claudia decided to run away, she knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running away. That's why she decided to run not from somewhere but to somewhere and she would be gone just long enough for her family to finally get a lesson in Claudia appreciation. Along with her second youngest brother Jamie (he could be counted on to be quiet plus he was rich), Claudia ends up living in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. But once the fun of settling in is over, the pair run into a few unexpected problems, one of them involving the mystery of a beautiful statue.

Winner of a 1968 Newbery Medal.

Ages 9 and older. Published in 1967. 162 pages, 16 black-and-white illustrations. 5 3/4'' x 8 1/2''. Hardcover with jacket.
