Overview

The empty yellow house on Grandpa Alden's island was shrouded in Mystery for over 40 years. When Grandpa tells Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden of the curious circumstances in which the house became vacant, the children are not satisfied to leave the story unfinished. Determined to solve the mystery, the children uncover a trail of clues that lead them all the way to the woods of Maine.

With Joe and his new wife, Alice, as guides, the children learn the ways of the wild—cooking on an open fire, catching fish for dinner, and making beds with evergreen boughs and blankets. More than once, the children are reminded of their boxcar days while piecing together the puzzle of the yellow house, until they reach the heartwarming conclusion.

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.

The Boxcar Children stories are great adventures and family oriented and are a must for any child right along with Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins, Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden. I also recommend the BRIO GIRLS, Detective Zack books and Red Rock series. All keep the reader wanting more!
