Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.

I have been reading this book series since first grade,2009-2010, and it is almost 2012. This series was my second book series since Fudge by Judy Blume. I have read more than 200 books in the boxcar children series. I know I am getting to old to read books that have less than 300 pages,not that I'm saying they are to thin but I can't help sticking my nose into a good mystery once and a while. When I was in first grade I used to have a diffrent boxcar children book on my desk each day because when I got to my house I would pull my book out of my backpack,start where I left of at school and be finished with it by dinner time. I really recomend boxcar children books.
