Tag Archives: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Sad news

The View from SaturdayE.L. Konigsburg died on Friday. While she was always known best for “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,” I loved her other Newbery Award-winning book, “The View from Saturday,” more. “The View from Saturday” is one of my favorite books from childhood.

This has also given me an idea. I think I will start an occasional series on books from my childhood. I’ll re-read them and see how they stand up to the way I remember them.

But until then, thanks Ms. Konigsburg for a lifetime of amazing books. Read more here.
