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.

I think it is great book for all ages 13 and under
This book is about the Boxcar Children helping out the new shop owner and her granddaughter at the Greenfield Ice Cream Barn. The Aldens' love solving a good mystery and this one is made for them. The book has everything from mysterious phone orders to ice cream mixups. Guess the person behind all the happenings, didn't know about the Aldens nack for solving mysteries.
