The Calder Game by Blue Balliett

The Calder Game is the 3rd in a collection of art mysteries that employ math, logic, philosophy, history, and literature as well. Connections and interwoven clues are a huge part of the stories. They are unique stories that encourage looking at life, art, and the world in different ways. They also approach the whole subject of education in a different way. I found the 2 that I read so far to be intriguing and awesome in their vision and focus. I haven’t been able to get my hands on the 2nd, The Wright 3, but loved the other 2.

    All three are very complex mysteries, so the students who like them generally love mysteries and have the sort of mind that likes to put together all the clues. I don’t have that kind of mind, and found them all slightly frustrating!

    I’m sorry you were frustrated. I’m not that great at clues myself. I liked the flow of it and the connections popping up here and there. As a homeschool teacher, I can’t help loving the educational connections. And the art. I don’t strain my brain over figuring out the solution. I just enjoy it as it is revealed.
