Add this book to your reading list
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.
This is an incredibly challenging book for young readers, full of art history and many mysterious twists and turns. The characters, bizarre and appropriate, fit perfectly into the background and design of the story.
