The Boxcar Children: The Seattle Puzzle - A Kid's Pick Review
Reviewed by Samia (4th grader)
Title: The Boxcar Children: The Seattle Puzzle
By: Gertrude Chandler Warner
The fantastic book I read was The Boxcar Children: The Seattle Puzzle. The creative author was Gertrude Chandler Warner. The Boxcar Children were orphans. They had run away and found an old box car in the woods. Soon, their grandfather found them.
The Boxcar Children are taking a vacation to Seattle. They solve a mystery by finding notes everywhere they went. They could have to solve the riddle to find out what is going on. They figure out that the grandfather is in the plan.
This was a great book and I recommend it to anybody who knows how to read.
Rating: 5 Stars
