Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
The "Boxcar Children Mysteries" have been in print for many years. This new title (#122) continues the story line with Warner's original characters originally. Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden combine their talents to solve a mystery at the Cogwheel Stadium. As a special treat, their grandfather brings them to Clayton to attend the final games of the baseball season. The pennant winner, either the Cogs or the Hatters, will be decided by these five games. Things go badly for the Cogs during the first three games because the Hatters star player, Cody Howard, manages to hit home runs or triples every time he is at the plate. The children soon figure out that someone is stealing signs and relaying them to Cody so that he knows what pitch is coming. But who is the culprit? There are four suspects: Emma Larke, who always stands up and waves when Cody comes to bat; the hot dog vendor, Carlos Garcia; the mysterious Mr. X; and the team mascot, Wheelie the Cogwheel. Black-and-white pencil sketches throughout the book portray actions and events that are important to the story. Youngsters able to begin reading chapter books are certain to enjoy this mystery that should also appeal to the many boys who are reluctant readers. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
