Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The Aldens are sight-seeing in New York City. But before the end of their very first day in the city someone steals the priceless Elizabeth Star Diamond from their friend.

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.

We read The Boxcar Children books in school and the students love the stories. We don't read The Mystery in New York and since we live in New York I buy the book for the students to give them for their birthday.

I love this book. It is so fun to stop at the exciting parts and make yourself wait a little bit before reading it. I love the fun of thinking about all the clues, and trying to solve the mystery before the Alden Children do. Great characters, great plot, great story, great series.
