Format: Paperback
I was making a postage stamp exhibit on "Cabooses Uses" and found that the railway caboose was used for a variety of items including as a setting for young persons' literature. I wanted to know of other uses of cabooses including art, literature and advertising. This story met those goas and I read this story that has a mystery inside of it to get the feel for riding in a caboose as a young person. The author actually took a ride on a caboose and did many of the items described in this fiction story. The work is part of the author's "Boxcar Mysteries" series about railroads. It was great and very truthful about cabooses and how they were used on freight trains. While it is designed for the young reader it is very easy to read at a lower but not insulting level. It even has the typical younger brother who gets into trouble and misses the train as it gets ready to go on its way. He is picked up later on a return trip after being found in the woods by another youth.

A grandfather took his grandchildren on a week-long ride in a caboose and this is the setting for the story. There are really two cabooses, one for the girls and one for the boys in this adventure. Both do some funny things but yet very realistic. Many trainmen riding in a caboose would do similar somewhat strange things while in a caboose. They cook their own meals, meet with the Conductor, Engineer and trainmen and even get a chance to run the engine in a very realistic setting.

Since their main caboose had been used in a circus a mystery emerges when a diamond bracelet is discovered in the "cupola". All try to discover how it ended up hidden in a caboose. It is a very interesting story and verified what I learned about how cabooses were used in freight trains for over one hundred years of railroading in the U.S. They are now disappearing from the rails but did you see one on that train that just went by?

My grandchildren love the "Boxcar Children" books. It is nice to have a reliable series of books that you can depend upon to entertain and create a desire in children to read books. I found that the children actually look forward to receiving a new book in the series.

I loved the boxcar children books when I was young. Indeed, I still read them every now and then. My children loved the books and now my grandchildren are reading them and asking for more books from the series. This series is an excellent set of books to help turn children on to the love of reading.
