I loved this book as a kid (and still do). The idea of running away to live in a museum and being able to spend quality time with the exhibits is fun. The question is, is it a real Michelangelo or not? Can Claudia and her brother find out what the adults don't know?

Truly a great book! I loved it from the beginning to the end!

It is over TWO DECADES since I've read this book, but when the title popped up on screen my eyes widened and a smile crept onto my face. I remember reading and loving this book as a child. I remember reading how the older sister was methodic and planning, which reminded me a lot about myself. I remember the younger brother simply following. I also remember how the book went from a pair of runaways into a mystery. What did it start with? An emblem at the bottom of an angel statue. (If I remember correctly.) Even as a child, it was a very fun and easy read.

Quirky and practical, just like its enterprising protagonists. Immensely appealing, it may leave you scratching your head at the end. Which makes it all the more appealing as a re-read.
