The Boxcar Children are on a trip to New Orleans to help Grandfather's friend with her bookstore. The children love exploring the city, and they find lots of interesting things in the store. But when a beautiful book disappears from the shelves, the Aldens have something even more interesting on their hands—a mystery!

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.
