Praise
"Art, intrigue, and plenty of twists and turns make this art mystery a great read."
"[S]uspenseful, exciting, charming, and even unexpectedly moving."
"Thick with devilish red herrings, this smart, playful story never stops challenging (and exhilarating) the audience."
"Traditional red herrings and dead ends add classic pleasures to this less-than-traditional story, allowing for plenty of reading pleasure by mystery fans, budding philosophers, or just those drawn by the artistic or the unusual."
From the Publisher
Annotation A series of mysterious events brings Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay right into the middle of an international art theft--one so confusing that even the FBI can not solve the crime. However, in order to solve the mystery themselves, Petra and Calder must first find and decipher the clues hidden in a succession of confusing puzzles. Clever readers can play along by searching out the clues hidden in the B&W illustrations. A New York Times Notable Book for 2004. Winner of the 2005 Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Juvenile Fiction.
Editors Note When seemingly unrelated and strange events start to happen and a precious Vermeer painting disappears, eleven-year-olds Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay combine their talents to solve an international art scandal.
