Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Kelly
The Alden children have been moved to the present day, where they still live with their grandfather but now do things like order pizza. A brief introduction explains how the Boxcar Children got their name, but readers unfamiliar with the original series may still be confused. In this installment, Benny can't wait to meet the new kid down the street, only to find out that it's a (yuck!) girl. Benny is not very nice to her, but regrets it later when he needs help. Of course, all is sorted out in the end of this rather simplistic tale. Duffy's illustrations are adequate, but in some cases they overrun the text, making it difficult to read. This book is number 3 in "The Adventures of Benny and Watch" series and is billed as "A Boxcar Children Early Reader."
