À la même époque, Petra et Calder observent d'étranges phénomènes dans leur entourage: leur institutrice a un comportement des plus étranges, une vieille dame de leur entourage dont le mari, spécialiste de Vermeer a été assassiné, réclame la protection de la police, la femme figurant sur le tableau dérobé apparaît en rêve à Petra, un copain de Calder a mystérieusement disparu, etc. -- Un roman enlevant dans lequel s'entrelacent de nombreuses intrigues suscitant la réflexion des jeunes lecteurs sur l'art, son essence, son rapport à la réalité, etc. Une énigme à décrypter pour le plaisir à l'aide de pentominos jalonnant les illustrations ajoute au plaisir de la lecture. La réponse à cette dernière est disponible sur le site de l'éditeur. [SDM]
