Teaser Tuesdays: From the Mixed-Up Files

Teaser Tuesdays

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg p. 56

"Claudia was ready to pull Jamie out of line and make him learn another part of the museum today, but she got a glimpse of the room they were to go to next. It was filled with jewelry: case after case of it."

I haven't started it yet, but this certainly has teased me and I'll start it later tonight!

I remember reading this as a kid. I loved it. E.L. Konigsburg is a fantastic author. I hope you enjoy it.

This was a huge favorite of mine as a kid. I think I read it until the pages all fell out. And to this day my sister and I cannot go to a museum without imagining what it would be like to try and live in it.
