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.

The Boxcar Children are determined to solve the mystery that surrounds an old yellow house on their grandfather's property. Strange things have happened in that house where long ago a man disappeared.

    What I think about the book

    The book was ok. The characters in the book were great. The part that I mostly liked was when they were in the forest Mr. Hill came. It was a very interesting book. I read this book because I like mysteries. They are one of my favorite books.

    Can't get enough!!

    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!
