This is the original story that the later series of much-loved Boxcar Children books was based on.

Once, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny had lived in an old boxcar. Their parents had died, and they were afraid their grandfather was mean. But then he had found them, and the children had learned that James Alden was a kind and loving man. Grandfather decided immediately that they would go to Virginia, where Althea lived in a house called Peacock Hall. The Aldens packed, took a plane to Richmond, Virginia, then rented a car to drive to the Randolph estate.

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.

A distant relative asks for the help of the Boxcar children when enigmatic events start happening at her mansion. My child enjoyed this book very much. The book is adventurous and the characters are well developed. Although my daughter is only six, she was able to practice her fluency and gain confidence knowing she could read non-picture books. The children in the book exhibit respect, good manners and a spirit of caring for others. These qualities are developed throughout the story without sacrificing the mystery and adventurous nature of the book.
