FROM THE MIXED UPFILES OF MRS.BASIL E. FRANKWEILER By Nathan, Ron, Billy, Kaitlyn M.
BeginningClaudia is planning to run away from her normal life and is going to take Jamie with her. They chose that Jamie would be there treasurer( He had all the money) and that they would walk all the way to the museum where they would live for a while.
Middle• When they arrive at the museum, they immediately find a place to live. In the morning, they found a statue called “Angel”. Claudia wants to find the owner. They find a clue and send it to the museum. They report that they already found it.
End• They think Angel belongs to Mr.Frankweiler. They find Mrs. F. She said if they want to find the truth, they would have to find the truth in the mixed up files with 20 minutes to spare. They found the file and on the way home Mrs.Frankweiler put the file in her will to the children. Also, Jamie and Claudia accept Mrs.Frankweiler as their grandmother.
Summery• Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old- fashion kind of running away. That is, running away in the heat of anger with a knapsack on her back. She didn’t like discomfort; even picnics were untidy and inconvenient: all those insect and sun melting the icing on the cupcakes. Therefore, she decided that her leaving home would not be just running from somewhere, but would be running to somewhere. To a large place, a comfortable place, an indoor place and preferable a beautiful place. And that’s why she decided upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
