Not your average art novel!

by Distance Librarian on Feb 21, 2013

Wow, what an unusual story! Several disparate scenarios eventual are woven together to give a full story without a long, tiresome background-setting description that would have been necessary using a more conventional narrative style. Even the physical layout of the book is different. Two children have visions of two different paintings by Vermeer, and those paintings are on the front and back covers of the book. But the dust jacket has completely different artwork on it, showing the two kids mostly involved in the plot. An unconventional teacher, an elderly widow, and a bold thief complete the main cast of characters, with a host of minor characters keep the action flowing. I am looking forward to reading The Wright 3, the next title in this new series!
