Chasing Vermeer

Chasing Vermeer

Blue Balliett (2004)

special guest reviewer Son #2:

"I think that Chasing Vermeer was one of the best mystery books I have ever read.The boy uses pentominoes to tell the future because if he pulls out the P pentomino he finds a word that starts with p to predict whats going to happen
next.the two main characters are trying to find out who stole a lady writing , a famous picture by Vermeer.they notice small things like a code in a grocery list .i think that people who love mysteries should like this book."

(he's the one in green)

"find the art" : pgs 31, 36, 46, 80 ("everyday items as art"); pentaminoes

Holy smokes! That lizard has gotten HUGE! And it survived grandmommy lizard-sitting? I'm glad.

What an articulate review! I think I'll go get that book (I happen to be a big Vermeer fan). Thanks for the info, I'm always looking for a good book. You should guest write more often.

Funny you should ask because I just finished Eldest. They were great books. When's the next one coming out? Do you know?
