A Newbery Medal winning children's book by E. L. Konigsburg. The story is about two children Claudia and her younger brother Jamie who run away from home to live in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While at the museum, Claudia becomes fascinated with one of the museum's statues, and does not want to go home until she can discover the maker of the statue. To discover the artist she must explore the files of the statue's former owner. (Hence the book's title.)
