15: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

In this episode of Team Friendship Reads the Newberys, we discuss the 1968 Newbery medal winner From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. We enjoyed the cleverness of this story about a sister and brother who run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and become entangled in the mystery of the museum’s recently acquired statue. Grab some jelly beans and listen along as we discuss this book!

Note: The illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will not be coming till Fall of 2019. This is understandable as this book is much longer than the first three books, so it will take Jim Kay longer to do the illustrations. Some fans are speculating that the book will be in two volumes.
