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
