Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à I was born in New York City and grew up playing in Central Park getting my share of scraped knees and riding many public buses and subways By the time I was a teenager I sometimes stopped at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Frick Museum after school just to wander and look and think The Met has five Vermeer paintings and the Frick three so Vermeer and I have been friends for many years

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBA Da Vinci Code for tweens NewsweekThis is only one of the quoted praises lumped on Chasing Vermeer and proudly emblazoned on its back cover It is probably the most apropos quote because it hinges almost entirely on the readers' familiarity with and reaction to Dan Brown's novelIf you found Da Vinci Code boring trite melodrama

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBChasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett was given to me by a friend because it was similar to From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler As I'd read that and liked it I was eager to read this I've recently become interested in Vermeer so that added to my motivationThere are some things I liked about the book There are two protagonists who are both perceived as nerds but they are initially interesting and rather likeable Their names by the way were carefully chosen by Balliett as references to art and architecture There's an art theft and a crusty but eventually sympathetic old lady The author also tells us quite a lot about the life and work of a famous maker of old pictures and if as a result young readers become interested in a

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBI finished reading this to my 9 year old last night then poked around here on Goodreads assessing what reader response had been when the book was originally publishedI was surprised by how many reviewers didn't like this book or couldn't finish it Believe me I understand the issues readers had with plot points Yes the plot does unravel somewhat at the end Yes the bad guy here was a stretch of the imagination and too many sloppy bits were thrown in at the end I'm never a fan of not getting your story straight before you commit it to print However when it comes to criticizing this book as a DaVinci Code for kids Hmmmm Whether you liked The DaVinci Code or hated it you must admit it was a success It was incredibly readabl

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBI loved parts of this book and disliked other parts so there you are the epilogue ending is particularly bad in that I don't know how to work all this into the plot so here this is what happened kind of way The there's no such thing as coincidence stuff would have been way overdone in any other book but I understand that that was one of the author's main points here still I wasn't convinced And the art history reads as coming straight from t

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBAnother YA purchase from Green Apple books and to be honest a disappointment This is a new ish book published in 2004 and while I had never read it before I had high hopes I had read reviews that said it was clever it has expert illustrations by Brett Helquist Lemony Snicket’s illustrator and the inside flap lead me to believe it was a puzzle tale in the same vein as The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin Chasing Vermeer is not a terrible book but it didn’t live up to my expectationsIt tells the story of two outcast sixth graders Petra and Calder who come together and ultimately solve a mystery about a missing Vermeer painting I loved the characters – the leads seemed like real nerdy slightly unpopular students and the supporting characters were

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBThere is much to admire in this book but unfortunately quite a bit to dislike as well The story of two kids who solve a mystery will encourage young readers to question authority think outside the box and look for interesting connections in the world around them All good things righ

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBThis book was a lot of fun to read It reminded me a little of a Da Vinci code for younger minds only in some ways this book was a lot trickier Throughout there is a pentomino code and another hidden code which I never tried to decipher although I saw the clues Codes aren't my thing But I was still pulling out a notebook to decrypt the letters going between two friends in certain chaptersI think this is a really original and unique book that looks at things in all sorts of ways ways we might usually not The range of topics covered is somewhat broad but they flow together and while in some cases the thinking behind it all seems highly advanced at the same time younger people tend to be much open to crazy and wild ideas than some of their learned counterparts who know betterIf you like mysteries puzzles or art definitely give this book a readThis is one of the books I've most enjoyed in

    Hardcover Ü Chasing Vermeer eBook à chasing mobile, vermeer kindle, Chasing Vermeer ePUBUsually when I read finish reading a childrens book I didn't enjoy I ask myself whether or not I would have enjoyed it 13 years ago Sometimes my answer to me is yes and sometimes it is no but even with the nos I can imagine some hypothetical audience of child enjoying a bookWith this one I can't imagine any demographic Even gifted kids will probably need to have a savant like interest in art specifically Dutch Baroque art or in the mathematical approach to coincidence or in American university architecture or ideally in all three in order to power through the ungodly boring pages of this book Which there are a lot of Please know that I am saying this as a person who dorked out and received a 106% A final grade in Baroque Art class in college by doing unnecessary extra credit activities for fun OK?
