The Aldens are visiting the Alamo with their grandfather. They arrive at the Alamo to find that a movie is being made there — and they are going to be in it. But then things start to go wrong on the movie set, and a priceless ring from the Alamo Museum disappears. Are the two things connected? It is up to the Boxcar Children to solve this new puzzle!
About the Author
The Boxcar Children series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979.
