Books are destinations. I was toying with the idea of going to New York in the summer and someone recommended I read “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” because the two main characters run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So, while I didn’t actually go to New York, I lived vicariously through Claudia and James.

I pretty much fell in love with the book right away. Everyone can enjoy the story for its memorable characters, amusing dialogue, and the way it just takes you away for a short while- and takes you in.
Despite being published in 1967, it still seems so fresh and timeless.
