Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kim Dare
In their latest adventure, the four Alden siblings are in central Oregon, spending a week with a friend of Grandfather's. Victor has two adult daughters: Marianella volunteers with a search-and-rescue dog team, and Adelita is a pilot. Marianella offers to let the children accompany her on a search-and-rescue training session. While they are walking through the Cascade foothills, they find a yellow backpack from Twila's Handcrafted Jewelry Creations filled with valuable jewelry. When they return the backpack to the local jeweler, Twila tells them that a very special necklace is missing from the bag. She blames Adelita, who was supposed to fly the bag to a customer. There is no sign of Adelita initially, but the children later learn that after she realized her baggage compartment had opened during the flight, she hiked through the area, trying to locate the missing items. Aided by their dog Patch, the children follow a series of clues to the culprit responsible for the missing necklace. While this entry follows the same light tone as the other titles in the series, it suffers from an ethical flaw: it is troubling that Twila faces no repercussions after wrongfully accusing an innocent person and attempting insurance fraud. Still, this omission seems to go over the heads of Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny, and perhaps it will not bother the young fans of the series. Reviewer: Kim Dare

    Today I was five years old again and listening to Mrs. Wilson read the class the first book in The Box Car Children. She not only knew how to keep her children centered on their school work, but also who to teach the to love reading. I began reading The Boxcar Children - Mystery of the Fallen Treasure and I could hear Mrs. Wilson's voice in my mind. Thank you to Open Road Media for renewing that memory. The series has been updated to reflect modern time.


    In this story the Alden children, Henry, Jesse, Violet, and Benny, along their dog Watch and their grandfather arrive by plane in Sunriver, Oregon to visit Grandfather's friend Victor Gonzales. Shortly after arriving Victor's daughter Marianella invites the children to join her on a SAR (Search and Rescue Training) exercise. While in the woods Watch finds a bright yellow backpack filled with jewelry and a note saying the jewelry was made by Twila's Handcrafted Jewelry Creations. Upon further investigation Twila tells them that the backpack was on Marianella's sister's plane to a buyer in Portland. When they arrive at the airport they find Adelita's plane but she is missing and not answering her cell phone. Not only that Twila arrives to talk to Adelita because the most expensive necklace is missing from the pack as well.


    The Alden child are on the case. Can they prove Adelita did not steal the necklace? Can they find out what happened to Adelita? How did the backpack get into the woods? Follow the clues the Alden children find. Learn more about Search and Rescue teams and how they train. This is a wonderful story bound to enthrall the young reader and evoke fond memories for those wishing to reminisce from their own childhood.
