Grandfather is moderating an astronomy convention at a college in the West Virginia mountains, and the Aldens tag along. They're excited to learn about a student's big discovery, but then his work goes missing—and so does another student! The Boxcar Children must go above and beyond to solve the case.
About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today The Boxcar Children® series has more than one hundred books.
