This fall-flavored adventure for the Boxcar Children takes the Aldens to a New England farm that has more than its share of strange occurrences. Every year at the Beckett farm, visitors come to buy pumpkins and go on hayrides, but this year something is haunting the old place—a mysterious specter with a glowing pumpkin head that warns guests to stay away! It's up to the Aldens to find out who—or what—is behind the scare.
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.
