Grades 5-8.    Calder and Petra unintentionally find themselves in the middle of an art heist.  A series of clues lead the characters to solve the mystery, but at the same time the reader is given clues within the illustrations and secret codes to along the way to involve us in solving the mystery right beside Calder and Petra.
 Chasing Vermeer written by Blue Balliett is a book I've always meant to read but never got around to doing it.  I've missed out on reading a great mystery within a mystery and I'm so glad I didn't wait any longer.  If you love the mystery genre, this is a book not to be missed any longer.    January 22, 2013
