A gardener/bus station owner/diner cook/chemist? Needs help from the environmental activist Alden kids who fall into the situation? And then their wealthy grandfather makes it all happen and the evil company immediately changes it's mind? YEP. ;)

One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

Started this book as a read aloud at breakfast and had it finished by naptime. The kids really enjoyed it but also found it a little slow in places.

Standard box car children. Grandfather letting a bunch of kids travel far away unsupervised. Getting involved in local issues. Characters are solid and the kids are like able.

I like this book. I think having a mystery to solve would be fun!
Your typical Fern Gully type moral, shoehorned into a "mystery" plot. Honestly, not that bad, but I somehow doubt many young readers will find descriptions of civic meetings entertaining.
*pages-114* this book is so awsome. it keeps you at the edge of your seat. but this author is known for all of these awsome mysteries. the kids in this book are trying to figure a mystery out that is envolving CANDY!!! yum yum yum!!! i would recomend this book/series to anyone who likes mysteries and games in the bak of there books.*Essence* >pages complete-636< hey mister oshell i made a mistake by chosing the worg book title the books actual title isthe candy factory mystery. special#18

Just bought the last two books to complete my collection of the original 19 Boxcar novels as written by GC Warner. It's always fun to step back in time, and this installment expounding on the perils of pollution is still relevant even now, almost four decades since it was written.

If you have children you would do well to introduce them to this series, the earlier the better.

Little boy and I just listened to this tale of mystery. The weaving of the environmental issues in the story was forced but a good introduction to the problems of today to a seven year old.

Great book

this was a really great book to read!! it was very interesting and I didn't want to stop reading. Awesome read

This story seemed really forced but I liked the inclusion of environmental issues. Other than that it just didn't grab my attention.
The Boxcar Children = most read series between the ages of 6 and 9 for me. I think of these fondly. Every child should read this series.
I'm working on entering all the books I've ever read. This book was one of them. I read this book a long time ago.
