This one is actually different! The adults screw up and give the kids a mystery that isn't theirs and of course they solve it and it's no fun for anyone else.... until the end where everyone is happy.

Can I just say how great it is to be a kid?

Okay, so this is my first Boxcar Children series. I know I should've started somewhere earlier than the 96th book, but I take what's available. First of all, I think it's sort of grotesque to think that these kids used to live in a boxcar. Really.

Anyway, as I was reading the whole thing, I realized that I'm too evolved for this kind of book. I guessed the whole thing after several chapters, and I wondered why they couldn't. Then I got it: they're kids.

As a young girl I remember reading any Boxcar Children book I could get my hands on. It was one of my series' like the Babysitter's Club. Oh the memories! I liked this book quite a bit. I couldn't quite call it amazing since I pretty much had the book figured out before the end, but it was still good. I didn't however know until not too far from the end. It gave me an excuse to read an oldie but a goodie. I can't wait to have a reason to recommend to young readers this and others from the series ...more
