4.0 out of 5 stars From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, February 4, 2002
A Kid's Review
This review is from: From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (Yearling Newbery) (Paperback)
Do you like mysteries of adventure books? Well, if you do then you'll love this book, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Written and illustrated by E. L. Konigsburg.

This book is about a young girl and her younger brother who run away. They decide to run away so that when they finally do return they will be much more appreciated by their family. They end up living in the Metropolitan Museum, in New York City. While living in the museum they start to unravel the mystery behind a statue in the museum, which they refer to as "Angel".

From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is a book for children mostly ages 10 thru 14. That age group would enjoy this book the most because kids at this age can relate to how the characters are feeling in some of their situations. This book is also relatively easy to read and comprehend.

As you read this book, you will begin to notice it is written as a continuous letter. Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler writes the letter. Reading this book in letterform makes it a "quick read". It is considered a "quick read" because; there is not as much dialog, so that way you will not get confused very easily. Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is acting like a narrator so it is simple to understand and see what is going on.

So... to all of you mysterious and adventurous, early teen readers out there, this is the perfect book for you, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
