Activity Overview


In this activity, students will examine the author’s point of view and make inferences based on details from the text. There are three unique aspects in this text: periodically, the narrator speaks directly to Saxonberg; it is unclear who the narrator is until chapter eight; and the narrator ends up being one of the main characters in the story: Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler!

Text examples of each of these are:

  • "The game was nothing very complicated, Saxonberg... They played war, that simple game where each player puts down a card, and the higher card takes both."
  • "In fact when they emerged from the train at Grand Central...Claudia felt that having Jamie there was important."
  • And that, Saxonberg, is how I enter the story. Claudia and Jamie Kincaid came to see me about Angel.
