Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
The four Alden children, ranging in age from grade school child to college student, are excited when their grandfather purchases the old farm where he and his sister spent their childhood. They visit the farm to see what repairs need to be made before Grandpa's sister moves in. The townspeople are surprised to learn that the family has bought the house and want to live there. No one has been able to live in the house for a long time because there is "something wrong" with that it. Little do the Aldens know what they are in store for as they explore the farm and try to find out what is going on with it! Before they get very far, strange things start to happen. There are strange noises, food that is disappearing, and other unexplainable happenings. The children search for answers only to find more mysteries, including one about the old woodshed on the property. What do all these clues have in common? Can they have anything to do with the reason no one wanted to live on the farm? Will it be safe for their Grandpa's sister to live there? Children will be fascinated as they read this intriguing story; they will try to solve the mystery themselves. The well-drawn illustrations in the book help the reader understand more about the story. This book is part of the "Boxcar Children" series. Reviewer: Cathi I. White

Meet the Author


The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979.

    My oldest son loves these books, so I read them at night. They have interesting mysteries and adventures, and because of the date they were written they learn a great deal about how people lived in the mid 20th century, before they were born. The problem for me is that, given the date they were written, I find them incredibly sexist, where the female children "love" to clean and cook and decorate. I always make sure to point this out to my boys as it's so limited.

    GREAT BOOK!

    This book isnt my favorite, but I definitley would recommend his book to all of my friends. I love this book mainly because the children are expert at solving mysterys!!! When they saw the woodshed that was far out in the woods, they just quikly new there was something in that woodshed that no one new of, including themselves. Then of course they found a mystery that needs to be solved!! Once they went in the woodshed they found a gun... But I'll leave it to you to read the rest of the book. Have fun!!!!!!!!!

    Use your noodle in this mystery!!!!!

    I think that you will want to read The Woodshed Mystery because the way Ms. Warner writes it. She makes it so interesting.You may or may not like the book. For one thing, I loved the book and always wanted to read it. Every night I would always want to read about 5 chapters but I was never allowed. I always had to go to bed. During the day I had time to finish the book in 2 days. Benny is my favorite character because he always makes me laugh. Throughout the book you'd think that Henry, Jessie, or Violet might figure out the mysteries, but it's always Benny who figures them out. Benny is 7 years old, Henry is 17, Jessie is 16, and Violet is 10. I find that this book is a fun book for kids who love mysteries. I also think that's why Ms. Warner wrote The Boxcar Children books. The Woodshed Mystery is about a man who hides in a woodshed and stays there during the war. His name is Mr. Bean. The woodshed is a place where they kept armor. I dont want to tell you the whole book so that's all I'm going to tell you except that Aunt Jane wants to move back to where she grew up and that she wants to marry Mr. Bean!! Read the book to know what happens in the end. You'll love it!!!
