"This book begins, like a set of pentominoes, with separate pieces. Eventually they will all come together. Don't be fooled by ideas that seem, at first, to fit easily. Don't be fooled by ideas that don't seem to fit at all. Pentominoes, like people, can surprise you." - Blue Balliett, Chasin' Vermeer. A warm spicy-fruity golden blend fer puzzles, chance, 'n connections.

"Calder stood up 'n reached into his pocket. He stirred thar pentomino pieces around 'n pulled one out. ‘V fer Vermeer.’ He smiled in a distracted way at Petra, who looked puzzled. 'A one-in-twelve chance. Think it’s a coincidence?’"
"‘Weird,’ Calder said quietly. He glanced down yonder block 'n saw Petra in her yard. She had on a red hat, a smudge of bright color against ye November gray. Sometimes he wished he’d never heard of Fort or Vermeer. Events that were purely accidental were beginnin' to feel like they fit together, but not in a way he understood or even knew how to think about. It was one thin' if ye were usin' a handful of plastic pieces to find solutions to a puzzle; it was another if ye felt like you’d fallen inside a puzzle 'n couldn’t get out." - Blue Balliett, Chasin' Vermeer
