Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Gertrude Chandler Warner's Boxcar children-Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny-once again find themselves right in the middle of a mystery (Whitman, pap. 2001). While skating at the local ice rink, the children are surprised to meet retired hockey star Kevin Reynolds who has just moved to Greenfield and plans to create a girls hockey team, the Polar Bears, and build a new ice rink. When Kevin sees how well Jessie, a figure skater, skates, he invites her to join the Polar Bears and Henry to be an assistant coach. At their very first practice though, mysterious things begin to happen. First the orange cones to be used by the team during practice go missing, then ink is spilled all over the plans for the new skating rink, and Jessie's figure skates are stolen. The list of their suspects quickly grows to include Kevin's daughter Kathy, a team player's mother, and the figure skating coach. Narrator Aimee Lilly captures the mysterious moments, the thrill of a hockey game, and quiet family times by giving the characters individual personalities with subtle voice changes. The reading is well paced so that listeners can read along with the book. A welcome addition to elementary grade collections.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

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.
