I have read The Boxcar Children the Ghost Ship Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner. I have finished this book on 12/16/12. This book is a mystery.

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 :)

My favorite part was when the bad man was caught by the police. The worst part was when the bad man tried to almost drown one of the girls.

Re-read for nostalgic purposes, took about 30 minutes. Still enjoyable, though this one wasn't as fun as others.

This was the 4th Boxcar book in our audio set from the library. I definitely have had my fill of the Boxcar Children for a while. My 2 oldest boys really enjoy them though.

The kids find adults focused on some past event that has a mystery attached to it, something is robbed, and the kids save the day. These kids need to be studied!
