Under the Egg (book review)

“ And as I allowed myself to rest my head on Bodhi’s shoulder– imagine that, on a friend’s shoulder– I laughed and cried to think that I actually had someone to lean on.”  

Under the Egg  by Laura Marx Fitzgerald

This was an utter delight. Highly recommend this face paced art history/mystery/adventure. Readers will be whisked through an exciting tour of New York Cities famous auction houses and museums to find the hidden identity of the artist of an intriguing painting.  Charming Mighty Girl lead characters take center stage in this coming of age triumph.  Theodora Tenpenny,  and her intriguing celebrity sprog neighbour, Bodhi traipse around Manhattan collecting clues and solving the curious mystery of a curious piece of artwork kept in a dusty attic.

 

 Just the kind of middle-grade fiction I like to recommend for the perfect summer read- good clean fun!  If you liked From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler- you will love this.  Super for Art History buff parents too,  for a fun, and fast summer read aloud.
