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.

It took me till the end to sort out the mystery. A very good story that keeps you on your toes.

The dissipearing friend mystery is an exellent book and once you read it you can't put it down. The boxcar children find a new friend but for some reason she keeps dissapearing! Watch out for the very peculiar ending! I'd addvise 6-8 year olds to read this book.
