It’s spring, and all the baby animals are being born — a perfect time to visit the zoo. The Aldens and their friends are taking pictures there for a photo contest. But when cameras go missing and a girl is accused of cheating, the Boxcar Children must find out just who is monkeying with the contest!
About the Author
The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979.
