The Wright 3 Reviews
This sequel to the bestselling Chasing Vermeer continues the saga of two sixth-graders, Calder and Petra, to solve a mystery that eludes the grown-up detectives. This time they are joined by a returning friend of Calder's, Tommy, who has a rare talent for finding stuff. After a rocky start fraught with jealousies and insecurities, the threesome pick their way through many clues and crises.
I use this book and "Chasing Vermeer" (another book by the same author) as part of my literature circles. The students are hooked on the first chapters. This series of books has gotten my students doing independent research on Vermeer (from the first book) and Frank Lloyd Wright and then present the information they learned to other classes, parents, and community leaders. A wonderful author and series of books.
Excellent book for grades 4-6. Blue Balliett has a knack for integrating art and architecture into her books. She makes history come alive! For students who are reticent to read up on topics deemed as "boring", Balliett weaves the topic into the plot of her mystery stories. She makes the reader want to research and investigate.
We love this book! My 8 year old has read it several times. I read all three books in the series first to make sure they would be appropriate for someone her age. Interesting enough that that I really enjoyed reading them too :)
A friend and I (older adults) both read this book before visiting Robie House and it was fun!
purchashed for a gift
We are loving this book! Picked up a bunch more from the same author at the library. My ten year old and I love reading together and we are both enjoying this!
