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.

Probably the best Boxcar Children book I have read! When theAldens travel to New York City they befriend wealthy Mr. Pound. Heshows them his enormous and expensive diamond, the Elizabeth Star. But no sooner do they see it, it disappears into thin air. Follow them around as they chase their suspects through New York.

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.

This was a great book like all the other boxcar children books. I started to bite my nails reading when I was halfway through. It kept me up all night long. A+!
