Another of the Boxcar Children books, "The mystery of the Crooked House," is about Mrs McGregor fearing her house might be sold. The Aldens attempt to solve the riddle, because theres a potential for treasure. Ive never read any books in this series, it surprised me what a fun read it was.

This book was good because of mystery and the suspense of the story.What I didn't get is how the house got to be crooked.What i mostly liked about the story is that the mystery.
