Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
This is a compilation of an earlier re-issue of three of Ms. Warner's original stories. The Ghost of the Chattering Bones finds the four Alden children—Henry, 14, Jessie, 12, Violet, 10, and Benny, 6—accompanying their housekeeper, Mrs. McGregor, when she visits an old friend, Norah Eton. Strange things are happening at Eton Place. A bothersome man wants to buy a stone bridge brought over from England for Norah's great-great-great-grandmother, Meg Plum, to keep her from being homesick. Meg also received a ruby encrusted brooch, which she later claimed was stolen. Norah thinks Meg hid the brooch so her husband would not gamble it away. The kids unravel the mystery and recover the brooch. In the second book, The Creature of Ogopogo Lake, the Alden children must discover hidden treasure left to their grandfather's friend, Abby Harmon, by her friend, Patch O'Brien. Their only clue is a riddle on the back of a photo of seven cats—each one different. The riddle says, "An awesome treasure/you can find/with the clue/ I've left behind." If the kids can solve the riddle and find the treasure, maybe Abby will be able to keep her resort going. Patch owned a boat called the "Seven Seas" and that is the clue in the photo, because all seven cats' names start with the letter C. Fortune found, Abby keeps her resort. "The Vampire Mystery" is about strange doings at Mr. Hudson's house, which he has to sell because he is too old to keep it up by himself. But the mystery is solved when the Alden children discover Mr. Hudson's long lost brother is hoping for reconciliation, but has been afraid to approach his brother. These stories have stood the test of time well and do not seem too outdated. Part of the "The Boxcar Children" series. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
