Claudia and Jamie Kincaid, who live in Connecticut, run away from their home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There, they plan to learn everything they can about the museum, and sleep in the historical beds of famous people. They came with twenty-seven dollars, but left with the richness of golden experiences. For throughout their journey, they had encountered a mysterious rich old lady a secret she might know the answer to, and a very peculiar statue, which the secret is about.

This book won the Newbery Medal, and rightly so, because this is certainly a timeless classic, and though that phrase sounds stereotyped, I really mean it.
