I'm very excited to start another book for my book club. The book I chose is another Newbery Medal winner. It is called, FROM THE MIXED-UP FILES OF MRS. BASIL E. FRANKWEILER, by e.l. konigsburg. Oh, first I should mention that the author writes her name in lower case letters on her books. I don't know why. That would be a good question to ask her one day.
This story is about a girl named Claudia who takes her brother, Jaime, and runs away to live in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. That sounds pretty exciting! But there's more. There's something about Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Claudia needs to find out who she is before she can go home. This book sounds like a good mystery story, too.
Let's read the first chapter this week. Write to me to let me know what you are thinking about while you are reading. And don't forget to write down your refrigerator words on sticky notes.
