Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
The house next door to the Aldens' house has been empty for a long time, so they are surprised when a family with two boys moves in. The boys do not seem to have any interests, so the Aldens talk them into building a tree house in their backyard. In the process, they find a telescope that had been missing for years and discover a hidden room in the house. Through talking to the boys' uncle and doing some research in the library, they find out the reason why the room was closed off. They are happy to discover an antique rocking horse which the uncle can use to promote his restaurant. The thirty-two page book is divided into nine chapters. The graphic format does nothing to enhance the story. The comic-book style illustrations are stilted and static, as is the dialogue in the conversation balloons. Much of the plot is explained in text boxes. The colors are dark and murky, and the characters' faces all look alike and convey little expression. This is not a very appealing choice for beginning readers. Part of "The Boxcar Children" series, this work was adapted from the novel of the same name which was first published in 1969. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

    Comic Books without violence...

    My 7 year old is interested in comic books. I looked at regular comic books and did not care for the violence. The sales lady @ B&N recommended this book. It is in comic book "form" and has mystery and excitement, without the violence. My mother instantly recognized it and remembered reading this when she was younger. My son liked it so much, we have started reading the chapter books that these comic books are based on. Very appropriate for young readers and for conscious parents.
