Sculptor Alexander Calder, a mysterious maze, and international intrigue are part of the mix in Blue Balliett's third book about precocious seventh-grader art sleuths Calder Pillay, Petra Andalee, and Tommy Segovia. Calder is fascinated by a museum-wide exhibit of Alexander Calder's mobiles and sculptures--and then surprised to find a sculpture by his namesake in a tiny English town when he's on a trip with his father. Some of the townspeople seem to hate the sculpture, others are fascinated by it. But when Calder disappears after leaving a note for his father about helping someone out, things get even stranger. Soon Petra and Tommy are on their way to England to help find Calder before something really sinister happens. With expressive B&W drawings by Brett Helquist.
