The sequel to Chasing Vermeer, which is a fabulous book. If you liked that, you'll like this, of course. It brings Calder's friend Tommy into the mix, and he takes most of the book to get at all likeable. You also need to have a high tolerance for unlikely coincidences, because they're very thick on the ground here. It's not exactly The Westing Game, but it's a very fun read overall. And who can argue with a book that may get kids reading Invisible Man, or playing with Fibonacci numbers?

The cover and interior illustrations are all by Brett Helquist, who's had me since The Bad Beginning. Like the first book, there are hidden images in the art, which can be a fun little scavenger hunt if you're interested.
