They were going to go to a island. But the caption got hurt. Everyone thought the house was haunted. But they found out it was just friends. I like that Benny was the first to find that it was a boy and girl. The caption found out it was his friends.

I am currently reading this as a read aloud to my students! They love it, they constantly ask when we can read another chapter. They love the mystery and using the clues in the story to find out what is happening at the cabin!

This is the first of the "new" boxcar children books, i.e. not written by the original author. Good enough for a kid, but not worth it for me to seek them all out. I do love the original 19 books, however.
This was a very good story. There were some interesting moments where I thought about not reading anymore.
I thought it was awesome I really loved it. I really like the boxcar children mysteries like this one.
I loved the Boxcar children series when I was younger,.
A good series for the young reader.
The ending was just very sweet.
great when ur little
