Just reading this book brought me back to my childhood in a way that I didn't think was possible, it made me remember all the times that I had read the original series over and over because I wanted to be like them! I really liked how they brought this new series into a whole new setting that kids today will love without it being boring as they say for the older books. Even though this is only a five book series, I can only imagine what trouble they will be getting into and how it's all gonna end!
Thank You to Gertrude Chandler Warner & everyone involved in this new series for bringing back the Boxcar Children in a whole new exciting way to get today's kids loving this series as much as I did as a child!
