Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The Boxcar children and their new friend Beth decide to form a service called The Boxcar Helpers.

About the Author

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by its success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden Children.

Format: Paperback
I understand that children love these books and love mysteries. I did too, when I was young. (actually, I like some now too. :-) )
Sadly, I found the characters to be very shallow and too cheerful. When the art supplies were stolen, the children basically said, "Oh darn. Well, let's buy some more." When their work was destroyed they said, "Oh, shucks. Well, we'll do it again." When they started their business to raise money for the hospital (which I though was a great thing to suggest to children), they *instantly* had a full load of clients and the ability to carry out every task perfectly.
The kids are just too perfect to be realistic. Other than that, my 8 yo seems to be very enthusiastic about the series. If they are properly researched, children may learn a few snippets of information with each one they read. If the child puzzles over the mystery, they might serve a little purpose of stimulating creative though.
