Overview

A brand-new mystery in the beloved Boxcar Children series

A bad storm hits Greenfield and leaves behind a mystery! With no power or internet, the Boxcar Children will need to put the pieces together the old-fashioned way. It’s been a while since the children have powered down. Can they figure out what’s going on while being unplugged?

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 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 in south Alabama.
