From the Inside Flap

It looks like the radio station is haunted.

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.

A Kid's Review on April 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book was actually fun and kept me guessing! I usually think that Boxcar Children are pretty boring, but this book isn't. It's the best one (that I've read) so far. My guess of a suspect was wrong. I'll give you a clue: The thief isn't very obvious; they are very unsuspicious. That's all I'd better give you because I don't want to give away the book. :)

This book was a wonderful book, describing how youngsters feel about life. Though these children experience more than average, it still is wonderful to get everyone's point of view.

The Aldens travel to Pennsylvania to see their grandfather's old friend Jocelyn Hawley. Jocelyn's husband Luther owned a radio station. After Luther passed, Jocelyn took over the station. Her daughter Gwen, did sound effects.

The Aldens are very excited to see the station and listen to it's programs. But on the night they arrive, they hear a story of Daphne Owens. Daphne worked at the station on almost every show. One day she disappeared after a incident. Now, ear piercing screams fill the station and lights go out during the live mystery show. Equipment is even stolen! People joke it is the ghost of Daphne Owens. But soon, some start believing it is true.

After another day of a haunting from "the ghost", the cast from the live mystery show quits. Luckily, the Aldens volunteer to take their places. They start a kids mystery show where Benny is the ghost dog and Henry, Violet, and Jessie are siblings.

The mystery solving Aldens work hard to find clues and, with Gwen's help, figure out the real ghost.

This book is very wonderful indeed. I downloaded it yesterday, and was shocked hen I saw I was on chapter 7. I just finished the rest. I can read an entire book in one sitting, but I chose not to.

Amazon deserves a big thank you for quick shipment. This wonderful book downloaded with no problems and opened perfectly, allowing every word to be enjoyed.

Gertrude Chandler Warner:
Gertrude Chandler Warner never thought of her books to be in the mystery concept. She wrote 19 books in her life before her death.
