Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jacquie Skurla
The four Alden children are back in this 119th book in "The Boxcar Children Mysteries" series. When their dog, Watch, ignores their commands to stop barking and come, Jessie, Violet, Benny, and Henry decide it is time to enroll him in a new dog obedience school that just opened in their town of Greenfield. Immediately after the first class, a Dalmatian in the class mysteriously disappears, and the children offer to help the owner, Mr. Brooks, find him. When, however, a second dog, a purebred Malamute, goes missing after the second class, the children discover that a dog-napper may be the culprit. A stealthy visit to the "Clip and Yip" grooming parlor and an overheard conversation do not provide all the clues, though. There is a valuable lesson to be learned about jumping to conclusions. As in previous books in this series, the author deftly re-introduces the children, their grandfather, and the reason that they are his wards in the first chapter, and so it is not necessary for the reader to have been acquainted with previous books in this series to enjoy this easy-to-read, chapter book. Reviewer: Jacquie Skurla
School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—The four Alden children have a knack for finding mysteries wherever they go, and their dog's obedience class is no exception. When two dogs disappear from the class, suspicions abound. First, a man in the class is caught not telling the truth. Oddly, the teacher won't help look for the missing animals. Finally, there's the groomer, who happens to be present at each theft. The kids ask questions, take notes, and break down the list of suspects in a practiced, familiar style. Readers of the series should enjoy this addition.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA

Meet the Author

The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979.
