From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler | E.L. Konigsburg
124 posts | 308 read | 4 reading | 68 to read
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 place 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 help her with a serious cash-flow problem, she invites him along. Once settled into the museum, Claudia and Jamie find themselves caught up in the mystery of an angel statue that the museum purchased at auction for a bargain price of $225. The statue is possibly an early work of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions. Is it? Or isn't it? Claudia is determined to find out. Her quest leads her to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue, and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself.

Always a good read. Using this for the library SRP‘s “a book that makes you happy” prompt. Also number four down for #14books14weeks!

This is probably my 10th reread of this classic (the first time in 1982 lol). It's still one of me fave middle grade reads.

Eggs I concur-I‘ve lost count of how many times I‘ve read this. The question is why🤷‍♀️ 2mo
inthegreensandblues I loved this book as a kid but haven't read it since elementary school. I would think about it sometimes but couldn't remember the name! I bought the ebook a while back so it's on my tbr! 😁 2mo

This classic story has stood the test of time and is a delight to read and re-read. Claudia and Jamie, siblings living in the northeast, decide to go on an adventure. Living on Jamie‘s winnings from cheating at the Card game War, they find themselves living at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Claudia and Jamie are refreshing and resourceful youngsters that not only survive on their own but encounter a mystery.

From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler by EL Konigsburg is a Newbery award winning RF mystery and adventure novel all wrapped up into one! Two kids decide to run away to the Metropolitan museum and solve a mystery that they encounter while there. I think this would be good for an AS since this author has an amazing and extensive career. This book is super interesting and a fun read for sure! #LAE3414sp19

alexandracarpenter Since this book is older I couldn't find a lot of good resources on her publishing site or on ReadWriteThink. I did find a ton of worksheets and activities that looked amazing at www.bookunitsteacher.com/reading_mixedupfiles/frankweilerpreview.pdf 3mo
alexandracarpenter For a UDL I thought 4.1 - vary the methods for response and navigation - was good because a teacher can print out a map of the Met and students could track where the kids go to do things throughout the day! A good way to foster the skill of map reading. 3mo
alexandracarpenter I think a good ESOL strategy for this book would be 46 - use discovery learning activities. If you live in New York, wouldn't it be fun to take a trip to the Met? 3mo

An absolutely adorable story about looking inside to see what makes you different, finding the value in family and of course, hiding in a museum! Konigsburg wrote an afterword about inflation and how NY was a different place in 1967, but otherwise it holds up as a really fun adventure story!

Hestapleton I absolutely loved this as a kid. The magic of living in a museum was so enthralling. 4mo
IamIamIam @Hestapleton I missed so much as a kid because I thought I was too cool... LOL, I'm so lame! Have you read this? If you're a fan of the idea of living in a museum, this was a fantastic story! Go back to Mrs. Frankweiler, though. She'd love a visit. 😁💜 4mo

Rereading this book for the umpteenth time (for me) and yet for the first time (with my kid) was such a delight. This story is charmingly old-fashioned and surprisingly modern. I love the twists and turns and relationships and the necessity of certain kinds of secrets. But I do admit that this time, I certainly sympathized with the off-screen terror the parents must have been feeling.

MallenNC Same! I reread a year or so ago and I enjoyed it but felt worry I didn‘t as a kid. 4mo
thebluestocking @MallenNC Sometimes that adult perspective tamps down the fun of the adventure! 4mo

Cinfhen Ha! My first 3 years of marriage I lived in Kew Garden Hills (Flushing) while my husband attended Hofstra Law School ♥️I had blueberry cheese blintzes (like a crepe) but the only knishes I ever tasted were potato or kasha (buckwheat) and they were all DELICIOUS 😋 Now I cant eat dairy so it‘s been ages since I‘ve had blintzes!!!! What do you eat for breakfast if your vegan??? No eggs, right?!?!!? 5mo
mrp27 I lived in Garden City Long Island. Ex's family all in Brooklyn, Canarsie and Sunset Park. After my divorce I came back to California where I'm originally from. I agree, NYC has the best food. I miss it so much. 5mo

#LiteraryLove Day 16: I discussed this book with my 2 #bookclubs. I love the novel but one of the things disturbing me was the deliberate withholding of information by Mrs Frankweiler. #Secrets. I suppose it doesn‘t appeal to my sense of democratizing information and that it normalizes (and arguably even rationalizes) how only the privileged elite has access to information that can change the face of knowledge. My thoughts: https://wp.me/pDlzr-agh

vkois88 It sounds like a fun book though! 5mo

Let's see. Before school starts, I'll do a top-10 favorite children's books, and I'll start with this. Might be my top favorite! This is what fueled my dream of being a museum curator, and though I didn't become one, I pursued anthropology & archaeology for grad school and have studied traditional tattoos to mummies: things you normally find in a museum. 😊 Makes you wonder how much the books we read as children influenced us. #top10childrensbooks

This year I tried to challenge myself to read some of my old childhood favorites and this one has definitely stood the test of time. As a parent, none of this is appealing of a plot, but as a whimsical adult I still very much wish to run away to a museum, sleep in a regal bed, bathe in a fountain, and solve a mystery. I would highly recommend this to all ages! #fromthemixedupfilesofmrsbasilefrankweiler #classicreading #childrensliterature

I‘m getting ready to teach this book to my 4th graders during library. I ordered a used copy and just realized it had a personal message. I love to see the messages people write in books they give to others, but I also get said because I want to know why the owner is no longer the owner. Did they get rid of it on purpose or was it a mistake? I know it‘s silly, but when I get these books I feel responsible to protect them.

William of Baskerville was one of my favorite detectives in adult literary fiction. The Name of the Rose kept me guessing and made my mind work!
