Overview

A brand-new spooky mystery in the beloved Boxcar Children series

Black cats? Broken mirrors? The number thirteen? The owner of the art deco apartment building in nearby Silver City believes in all kinds of superstitions. The Aldens aren’t so sure about most of them, but there’s one thing they do know: something strange is going on on the thirteenth floor. Are they just coincidences, or is the building manager onto something?

Author Biography

Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today the Boxcar Children series has more than one hundred books. Anthony VanArsdale was born and raised near the beaches of south Alabama and to this day enjoys the warm southern temperatures of the Gulf Coast. He has worked as a professional illustrator since 2004, combining traditional and digital media to create illustrations with a "stylized realism." Among his favorite subjects to paint are animals, people, and illustrations that reflect the natural setting of his home.
