Hey, I think this may be a long-lost book from my childhood! The author and 
title do not ring any bells, but I remember being read a book about two 
children who lived in a museum for a weekend. In the story I remember the 
children collected coins out of a fountain in order to buy food (I thought 
this was a brilliant plan). Is this in this book?
