The Boxcar Children investigate three eerie adventures! In The Mystery of the Stolen Sword (#67), the kids visit an apple orchard and must figure out if someone is stealing the owner’s antiques or if it’s a ghost coming to reclaim what’s his. In The Vampire Mystery (#120), a local author’s vampire stories seem to be coming to life, and the Aldens must figure out who or what is haunting the local graveyard. And in Hidden in the Haunted School (#144), the kids seek to explain the strange events that are driving volunteers away as they clean up an old abandoned school.
About the Author
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.
