Book Review - The Boxcar Children: The Spooktacular Special
About the Book
A ghost mystery in their very own boxcar, a zombie, and a pumpkin-headed creature provide plenty of spooky fun for the Aldens in these three adventures! Includes three Boxcar Children Mysteries: #100 The Mystery of the Haunted Boxcar, #124 The Pumpkin Head Mystery, and #128 The Zombie Project.
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 its success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.
My Take on the Book
This was the perfect book to receive just before Halloween! What I loved about this is that you get three stories in one book and as always you get the great Boxcar Children characters that I know my family have come to know and love as well as the mystery and strong writing that we have also come to expect. If you have never read any of these stories you should, as they are fun reads for not only kids, but adults too!
