When suburban Claudia Kincaid decides to run away, she knows she doesn't just want to run from somewhere she wants to run to somewhere--to a spot that is comfortable, beautiful, and preferably elegant. She chooses the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Knowing that her younger brother, Jamie, has money and thus can assist her using the serious cash flow issue she invites him along.
Once settled in to the museum, Claudia and Jamie, find themselves caught up inside the mystery of an angel statue that the museum purchased at an auction for a bargain price tag of $250. Or isn't it? This quest leads Claudia to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself. Is it? Claudia is determined to find out. The statue is possibly an early perform of the Renaissance master Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions.
