  • "This bewitching first novel is a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery, disguised as an adventure, and delivered as a work of art. When a book of unexplainable occurences brings Petra and Calder together, strange things start to happen: Seemingly unrelated events connect; an eccentric old woman seeks their company; an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one is spared from suspicion. As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has stumped even the FBI?"

  • "The classic tradition of E.L. Konigsburg's From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, debut author Blue Balliett introduces readers to another pair of precocious kids on an artful quest full of patterns, puzzles, and the power of blue M&Ms. Eleven year old Petra and Calder may be in the same sixth grade class, but they barely know each other. It's only after a near collision during a museum field trip that they discover their shared worship of art, their teacher Ms. Hussey, and the blue candy that doesn't melt in your hands. Their burgeoning friendship is strengthened when a creative thief steals a valuable Vermeer painting en route to Chicago, their home town. When the thief leaves a trail of public clues via the newspaper, Petra and Calder decide to try and recover the painting themselves. But tracking down the Vermeer isn"t easy, as Calder and Petra try to figure out what a set of pentominos (mathematical puzzle pieces), a mysterious book about unexplainable phenomena and a suddenly very nervous Ms. Hussey have to do with a centuries old artwork. When the thief ups the ante by declaring that he or she may very well destroy the painting, the two friends know they have to make the pieces of the puzzle fit before it's too late!"

  • ""Nada más comenzar el curso en un instituto para jóvenes especialmente inteligentes, dos chicos de once años, Calder y Petra, descubren por azar en una librería un volumen asombroso. El hallazgo desencadena una serie de sucesos extraños y coincidencias sorprendentes, pero lo más grave es la desaparición del valioso cuadro "Mujer escribiendo", del pintor holandés Johannes Vermeer. Decididos a descubrir quién ha robado la obra, Calder y Petra se verán envueltos en un escándalo internacional en el mundo del arte, en el que nadie está libre de sospechas. Y para resolver las intrincadas pistas, que han dejado perplejos incluso al FBI, Calder y Petra deberán utilizar no sólo su intuición, sino también sus conocimientos sobre Vermeer, sobre los pentominós, y su capacidad de razonar y deducir con lógica."--P. [4] of cover"
