I have a strong but vague recollection of reading a book when I was a kid in which the characters go to the Cloisters museum in NYC. It sounded so cool, that, years later, when I finally when to New York for the first time, I made it a priority to go to the Cloisters. But, of course, I no longer have any idea what the book was! At first I thought it was "From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" or "Remember me to Harold Square," so I just re-read those, and it's not them! I'm not having any luck googling or searching Amazon. So, does anyone out there know of a children's book (not a picture-book, but more like juvenile or YA fiction) where the characters go to the cloisters and there's a nice vivid description of them that would inspire you to want to visit yourself???
