  5. I was highly anticipating this book, as the concept of two eleven year olds, Ruthie and Jack, who discover a mystery behind the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago is an intriguing premise I was hoping this would be a good real alike to either The 39 Clues or Blue Balliet s books However, I found this book to be hopelessly derivative even the cover screamed see how much like Chasing Vermeer I am , the characters to be fairly underdeveloped especially the motivation of R I was highly anticipating this book, as the concept of two eleven year olds, Ruthie and Jack, who discover a mystery behind the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago is an intriguing premise I was hoping this would be a good real alike to either The 39 Clues or Blue Balliet s books However, I found ...

  6. I really liked The Sixty Eight Rooms because it is about a girl who find a magical key that has the power to make her shrink to five inches tall Which is helpfull because in a museum there is an exibit with muniture rooms that were made to look like they were from different places in different years that are the perfect size for her to explore when she is shrukin I think it would be really cool to be five inches tall and to get to experience being in a 1940 s French bedroom, or a 1680 s Englis I really liked The Sixty Eight Rooms because it is about a girl who find a magical key that has the power to make her shrink...

  7. Just okay.This book had a ton of potential but the author s writing left much to be desired As a Chicago area native I have been to the Chicago Art Institute on several occasions and the Throne rooms continue to be one of my favorite exhibits although I prefer Colleen Moore s Fairy Castle at the Museum of Science and Industry.I love Thumbelina, Honey I shrunk the Kids, and From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler so when I saw that this book was about kids shrinking down to miniat Just okay.This book had a ton of potential but the author s writing left much to be ...

  10. I m from Chicago and have visited the Thorne Rooms many times and love them , so I was immediately drawn to this book It started out a bit slow for my tastes, but I soon realized that the intended audience for this book is not me It s younger middle grade, or for kids who scare easily Once I adjusted to that, I really enjoyed the story.I do think that the author could have focused a biton the rooms themselves, and less on the logistics and details of how the kids get in and out of the I ...
