Dated but Good

Some of the details are 45 years old, but it still feels like a story that could have happened. I'd like to know Claudia and Jamie as friends.


Makes you want to get lost in a museum!

Love it

I read this book when it first came out in 1967. It was an unusual book at the time, talking about kids who had some troubles in their lives. I zipped through it in one day and still remember it fondly.


truly fabulous book


an unusual twist on running away, some art history and mystery involved


2 kids run away to the metropolitan museum of arts. A great story!
