Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
The Boxcar children—orphans Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden—are excited about their vacation with their Grandfather, a trip that includes a climb up Old Flat Top, a beautiful mountain. But when a rockslide occurs, the children get a glimpse of a mysterious cave; and later that night, while waiting for rescue, they spy a tiny light, far down in the woods. The cave and the light lead them to a Native American woman named Lovan, who tells them about a legendary treasure hidden in a cave on the mountain. With the help of an expert explorer, as well as Lovan's long-lost grandnephew, the Alden children climb the mountain again, this time to solve the riddle of the treasure in the mountain cave. Part of "The Boxcar Children Graphic Novels" series, this book faithfully follows the author's original story. The adapter has done an admirable job selecting the plot details, and the dialog and tone echo the original. The illustrator uses both landscape and portrait panels, and this serves to make the artwork more interesting. The original Boxcar stories by Gertrude Chandler Warner have long been loved by children and adults alike for their portrayal of honest, authentic characters. The author, who died in 1979, would probably have been pleased to see her stories transferred so thoughtfully, and with so much care, to the modern medium of the graphic novel. Reviewer: Leona Illig

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.

This story takes place mostly on Old Flat Top, a local mountain. It starts off when the Alden¿s go mountain climbing on this mountain. While on the mountain, the family undergoes an accident that allows them to discover a cave. Later on, hey see a distant light and figure out it is an Indian named Lovan Dixon. She says she is the last in her tribe and then tells a story about her father. She tells how he ended up with a bag, and then hid it in the cave. The next day, they see an Indian boy whose name they find out later is David. The Alden¿s think that David might be related to Lovan. This book didn¿t really keep me interested. There were only a few parts where it was exiting, and those were the points that revealed the answers to the major questions in the story.
