When Claudia and Jamie Kincaid run away from home, they decide that the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the best place to escape detection. Their first few days are spent admiring their strange new home, hiding, and figuring out how to survive on their own. Their adventure becomes even more exciting when the museum acquires a lovely statue and rumors circulate that the creator may have been the great Michelangelo. Claudia is determined to find the truth, and Jamie is forced to go along. Their quest leads them to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler--the woman who donated the statue--and a new challenge. Through it all, Claudia hopes to find that special accomplishment she needs to complete before she can return home.
