About Albert Whitman & Company.
Gertrude Chandler Warner. Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, four orphaned brothers and sisters, suddenly appear in a small town. No one knows who these young wanderers are of where they have come from. Frightened to live with a grandfather they have never met, the children make a home for themselves in an abondoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life for themselves - until Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her.
The excitement begins when the Boxcar Children meet their old friend, Mike. Illustrations by Dirk Gringhuis are nice, not spectacular. When Mike is blamed for starting a fire, they know he s innocent. For funny, and one thing kids might miss, there's some astonishment that the kids are being picked up at the train station by Maggie, driving a car, as if cars - and women driving them! - are very unusual.
