The Calder Game

Most Recently Read Book:

The Calder Game

By Blue Balliett

I just finished the third book in this series about three kids who get wound up in art/math mysteries in and around Chicago.  I like this series a lot.  The writing is great.  Sometimes the stories are a little outlandish, but I like the characters and the writing makes it completely worth reading.  In this book they learn about Alexander Calder, a famous artist who created mobiles.  They go to the Art Institute in Chicago to see his exhibit.  It has me wanting to go to the Art Institute!  I cannot wait for summer to roll around when we'll be off during the week and it will be nice enough to drive or take the train downtown.  I'm so excited!
