Before he died, Jack told Theo to look under the egg to find the treasure. Confused as to what he meant, Theo went on with her days not thinking much of it. Then, everything changes. When Theo stumbles upon a beautiful piece of art that looks incredibly expensive, she’s taken over by fear instead of thrilled at the idea of of selling it for cash.
You see, Jack had two jobs before he passed: He was a painter and he was a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Theo quickly comes to the conclusion that the painting wasn’t simply a family heirloom, but it was something that had been stolen. Conflicted as to what to do, Theo must figure out how handle the situation at hand.
With surprising twists, heartwarming moments and historical facts, Laura Marx Fitzgerald creates the perfect adventure in Under the Egg. Art enthusiast or not, any girl will love this book. And after reading it, you’re going to want to take a trip to an art museum ASAP.
