Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Squeaky doors, footsteps, and the wind's eerie cries are just some of the sound effects that make this story dynamic and intriguing. Aimee Lilly's narration conveys the Alden children's enthusiasm as they investigate the mystery of the Flying Cloud, a sailing ship that sunk years ago. Lilly's range of voices clearly represents the diverse personalities of the story's characters—from the crusty sea captain to the stern owner of the local museum and from Benny's fast-paced excitement to Jessie's sensitivity and Henry's sense of responsibility. Lilly's narration flows harmoniously, and her pacing keeps listeners engaged as the children discover the reason behind the secrecy of a small sea town."

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.

    Providence's Great Grandparents

    This book was the most mysterious and suspenseful book I've enjoyed all summer. I listened to this book on tape.
