The true Boxcars- those written by Warner- are stellar. Afterward they became formulaic and predictable. These were the first chapter books I read to my kids at bedtime. We must have gone through 50 at least. Wonderful adventures of the kids looking after themselves following their parents' deaths. Soon they're reunited with their wealthy but estranged Grandfather Alden. Now the adventures are pure mysteries, but still exciting! Get the older ones and you can't miss.

The books were great. However, after editors at the publishing company started writing their own stories for the series, it got out of hand.

Wow, I'd be interested to read this again. If I remember right it was about different aged kids coping on their own, taking shelter in an abandoned boxcar. I recall this as being one of the first (non-Suess) books that I ever read. There was something very romantic about the whole situation -- kinda like a more innocent "Party of Five" episode.

My first grade teacher read this to me 40 years ago and I think it is a good reason I became such a great lover of reading and collecting books. I read every other book she wrote that I could find in the library. I read this book to my own kids. It's great.
