PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Capture the Flag by Kate Messner is a great story for upper elementary and middle school students. Anna, Henry and José meet for the first time while snowed in at a Washington, D.C. airport the morning after the Star-Spangled Banner is stolen from the Smithsonian Museum. The story that follows includes a fun cast of characters, excitement and suspense as the three children try to investigate the heist on their own.

I highly recommend it to students that enjoyed Operation Redwood by S. Terrell French, From the Mixed-up Files of Basil E. Frankenweiler by E.L. Konigsburg, or Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein.

This book makes a wonderful novel unit for the whole class or for small reading groups. It works well with fifth, sixth and seventh grade independent reading levels and can be easily used as a read aloud or for advanced literature circles in fourth and fifth grades.
