Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny are actors in a live mystery show being broadcast on an old-fashioned AM radio station. But that's not the only mystery the Boxcar children are part of—it's starting to look like the radio station is haunted!
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 the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.
