Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
The Boxcar kids are back. This time there are zombies lurking in the woods at the Winding River Lodge. While on vacation from the Greenfield Gazette, Madison will be spending time finding a story for her blog, "Hauntings." She decides to study the local folklore about zombies. Benny wants to know all about the zombie legend. While Benny and the gang help Maude clear the old trail to the fishing lodge, Benny thinks he sees a zombie behind the lodge. The story the kids hear sitting by the campfire is chilling. It seems that a dead body was found in the forest by the river. It was a hermit. When he was spotted walking abnormally before dawn the legend began. Benny and the gang make it their mission to solve the mystery of the zombie. Kids will have a great time reading along and searching for clues along with the Boxcar gang. This addition to the "Boxcar Children" series is a quick and easy read for all young readers. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—The Boxcar Children are back in a somewhat updated mystery adventure, and they are still the same ages as when they first appeared in 1942. In the gentle, formal style of creator Gertrude Chandler Warner, the four children continue to find light mysteries to solve. In this one, they are staying at a lodge and hear a campfire story about a zombie. Benny sees lights moving in the woods and hears suspicious noises at night. The youngsters use their camera that can take both photos and video, and it seems rather unrealistic that they are worried about using up the memory card the way they might have worried about wasting film 25 years ago. A mysterious night person who stole money from investors is mentioned in the opening pages as missing and does not appear again until he is caught. However, the series will always be a staple for students who are ready for easy mystery chapter books, and Zombie will be popular because of the updated artwork and theme.—Sharon R. Pearce, Longfellow Elementary School, Oak Park, IL

    My grandsons are captured

    My 7 year old twin grandsons have enjoyed all the Boxcar Children stories so far. This story is a little too scary to read just before bedtime, but otherwise it's "read just one more chapter, grandma."
