This book is a wonderful read for adults and children. As a mature adult it awoke the sense of adventure I had as a child, and maybe still have as an adult. I have sent it on to my grandchildren a girl age 9 and boy age 7. I hope they don't test the adventure in reality though.
A real classic. everyone should read it.

A great read for all ages, this is the story of a young girl who runs away from home with her little brother and lives in a museum. One of the most creative and entertaining books I have ever read in my life, I was enthralled to learn the logistics of life in a museum after hours. I loved this book.
