I would say my son and I marginally enjoyed this one. It took quite awhile to get to the actual 'mystery' portion of the book and by then we were both losing interest. The setting was the only thing that kept us going- my son enjoyed reading about the rides at the park. It was very obvious who the perpetrator was, and they pretty much gave themselves up at the end, even though it wasn't necessary.

Very good book, I finished it practically in one sitting.
I dismissed these Boxcar Children mysteries as hokey and therefore did not buy them, but then the kindle had some for a VERY low price so I could not resist. And really it is not bad all. Yes, it is hokey, but it also a nice little mystery for little kids. (It involves trying to figure out what happened to the carousel horses. We learned two new words: "calliope" and "dappled".)
Sure, this book was as good as the other boxcar children books I have read. It is full of exciting wonders and many parts that make me as scared as Benny. when reading the fun amusement things, I feel envy and wish I were actually at a amusment
park too. It was really hard not to
think that though.

It's fun to read another Boxcar Children book. I haven't read one in a long time. I really liked the setting (an amusement park). It made it really fun to read.

For some reason this is the boxcar children mystery I remember best, and the one I liked most. Hmm.
