In this intricate, magnificently imagined sequel to Blue Balliett's international best seller, Chasing Vermeer, supersleuths Petra and Calder, along with Calder's old friend, Tommy, are cryptically drawn into another art mystery, this time involving a Frank Lloyd Wright architectural masterpiece, the Robie House.

When the kids' sixth-grade class attempts to save the Hyde Park landmark from demolition, eerie events are reported: Voices float out from within, shadows shift behind the art-glass windows, even the roof moves! Suddenly, a well-meaning art restoration project turns into a frightening search for ghosts, hidden treasure, and a coded message left behind by Wright. In this tangled web where life and art intermingle with death and danger, can the kids pursue justice and escape with their lives? Download and start listening now!

    " Another great mystery with Calder, Petra, and Tommy. This book and its predecessor are very interesting youth mysteries-they incorporate history, art, math, science and the unexplainable in ways that cause me to think deeply, which is a challenge considering it's a middle-grades novel and I'm 28. Or maybe that says something about my intellectual abilities! "

    " Intriguing story, but it was a little hard getting started. The story stirred my interest in the already popular Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. I am sure this one will be pitched for a movie! "

    " Picking up where Chasing Vermeer left off, the reader is reunited with Petra, Calder and Tommy. In Chasing Vermeer, Tommy and Calder were best friends. But Tommy moved away and Petra moved in. Petra and Calder became fast friends. Petra and Calder solved the Vermeer mystery together. Now Tommy is back and the trio makes for an uneasy triad. It's as much a book about friendship as it is about solving a mystery. This time the mystery centers around the Robie House, a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Chicago. The house has fallen into disrepair and the University cannot raise enough funds to care for it. The house is to be cut up, with parts of it going to four museums for display. The house itself seems mightily opposed to the idea, which brings into question how an inanimate object might be animated and expressive. Frank Lloyd Wright grappled with this question in his architecture himself, wishing to create a living space in harmony with the natural environment. Their teacher, the lively and unpredictable Ms. Hussey, has tasked her sixth graders with answering the question of whether a building can be a piece of art. Is there any way these sixth graders can save Robie House? There is much to consider in the book. There is the story of Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture, pentominoes, secret codes, hidden elements in the illustrations , Hitchcock's movie Rear Window and, references to great literature, particularly The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. All in all, a very enjoyable read! "
