Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lauri Berkenkamp
In this graphic novelization of the twenty-fifth book in the beloved "Boxcar Children" series, the Alden children are invited to an amusement park that has an old carousel with valuable antique horses. The children enjoy their visits to the park, but notice that the carousel horses are mysteriously being damaged. When the Aldens begin receiving threatening phone calls warning them away from the carousel and the park, and see strange lights in the amusement park at night, they decide to investigate. This adaptation of the full-length chapter book to graphic novel may appeal to reluctant readers, but the plot is cut to the bone, illustrations are poorly rendered, and the children are difficult to tell apart. Characters appear without any introduction, which is likely to confuse readers unfamiliar with the full-length books. The benefit this book might offer is to introduce young readers to the series and inspire them to read the full-length chapter books, but on its own is a poor substitute for the real thing. Reviewer: Lauri Berkenkamp
