The Boxcar Children

Four newly orphaned children: Henry, Jessie, Violet & Benny are on their own looking for food, water and a safe place to sleep at night. The kids have a Grandfather, but they’ve heard he’s mean and doesn’t want them, so they’ve decided to try to make it on their own.

During a storm, the kids find shelter in an old boxcar. It’s safe, dry and near a place to get water. The boxcar becomes their home. When Violet gets sick,  the kids are forced to find an adult that can help. Can they trust the doctor? Will he take them away from their boxcar home?

And it turns out the four kids have a knack for solving mysteries and star in many, many more Boxcar Children Mysteries starting with book #2 Surprise Island. Surprise Island

Gertrude Chandler Warner wrote the original 19 Boxcar Children books. After she died, her publisher arranged to have more Boxcar children books published about the same four kids. New this year is The Boxcar Children Graphic Novels. That means the books look like a comic book.
