This book was SO much fun to read. I love mysteries and this has a doozy! It is also about art heists --those who steal famous works of art that are closely guarded in museums. There is a beetle who creates miniature pen and ink drawings like Durer (one of our Artists of the Week), and a young boy who tries to pull off a deception that gets more and more challenging. This book has everything.
I would recommend "Masterpiece" to everyone. I didn't want it to be over.
