Kids are doing something besides mysteries, party planning! But of course, adults totally screw that up and start robbing the kids customers and NOW THEY HAVE TO SOLVE A MYSTERY. Give these kids a break, man.

This was a decent mystery in the "updated" Boxcar children series. I enjoyed reading about the party business that the children created in this episode. Who better to plan a fun children's party, than a bunch of children, right? The series has definitely been modernized, but I could see it appealing to some young readers.

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 :)

This one was one of my least favorites. I had the mystery figured out in the second chapter.
