Yes this is a children's book...but it's an amazing one! I think I first read this book sometime around 3rd grade, but it was just as good as I remember. It's even better now, since I've been to the Met and know exactly what they're talking about. (I especially loved seeing how little the Met has changed...looking at the pictures of the big pyramid and saying "I saw that last week!")

I think Claudia was one of my heros when I was a kid...I just didn't really realize it. I wouldn't mind getting lost in the Met even today, and I'm a big admirer of the kind of cunning it would take to teach your parents a lesson like that. Claudia's a geek after my own heart. :P
