    I like this book! It is engaging and hold your breath the entire time. I like how the story isOne ministry after another mystery. The only thing it’s hard for me to believe is The bad guys just turn over easily at the very end, yet they demonstrated such cold Ness towards the boxer children and the beginning. I think there is always a fine line between trying to probe into somebody’s life and just let it be and do nothing. That just means the Boxer children really want to know the truth but a lo I like this book! It is engaging and hold your breath the entire time.

I think there is always a fine line between trying to probe into somebody’s life and just let it be and do nothing. That just means the Boxer children really want to know the truth but a lot of times they struggle whether they can just talk to the person that they suspect directly or show up in front of their house directly or not. It’s very adventurous, And I like how boxer children support and encourage each other and work together as a team. I love to see more books from boxer children.

    This book was fantastic. It was about the children's grandmother who is no longer alive in this time period of the book, and that she lost her necklace in the past. Of course the children go searching for it. It ended up being in a museum that got donated by a family who did not want their son to get in trouble. He stole the necklace because he wanted to earn money but did not want to get a job.

    The book was nice but it was not that good at the beginning so I rated it 4 stars. Then when it gets to the the middle the mystery already starts I was so interested then they find out what happens. Then at the end they rest and act like that was the end of the mystery.

    The boxcar kids find an old painting of their grandmother which leads to the mysteriously missing necklace she owned. *Docked for curator's lack of morals i.e. lying, stalking, theft, etc. Not recommended for children ages 5-8; okay for children ages 8-12, if it's discussed afterwards.

    These written after Ms. Warner's death, are not nearly as good. This mystery was downright irritating.

    Interesting mystery, important to address stereotypes, not great for discussion, could talk about characters relationships/ motivation, themes: determination, forgiveness

    I've read alot of these books when I was younger and I just wanted to say, I don't know why. They were really boring and it took me forever to read them because I could never really get into them.

    Good for low/struggling students-large print and each chapter ended on a clue or some suspense, thus keeping students very engaged

    O. likes these a lot. I'm not as much of a fan. It's fun to discuss the possibilities of the mystery with him, though. He really gets into it.

    One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)
