I am very please with the book set. It has a cardboard "box car" that they sit it. The books are sealed in plastic to protect until used. I would recommend.

I read these as a child and so I ordered for my 9 year old granddaughter to peak her interest in reading. She is enjoying all five books and when done I will get her more..Glad that I could find them so easily and purchase and ship with no hassle

My great-grandson loved these books. He is 8 years old and has gotten interested in the mystery genre. The Boxcar book holder was great and it looks terrific in his room.

The kids were looking forward to night time reading with parents. Have the original story to add to this collection.

I've read the first 6 in the series. I love every one and I'm a mom of four. My two older boys, ages 9 and 11, really enjoyed the adventure and surprises throughout the books, especially since it's about kids. Great read for anyone ready for an action packed mystery adventure.

Isle of Swords defines a fun swashbuckling adventure! Its' fun, if not original creations: a boy with no memory, a massively strong pirate, a headstrong co-heroine and skilled but mysterious main character, fighting monks, and a generous helping of danger and action are sure to appeal to the adventurous young teens reader. The book contains both some violent flashbacks, and implied gore, so sensitive stomach readers may want to stear clear. For those that do brave the waters however, I believe you'll find a fun story with good take home values of loyalty, freedom from the past, and honor amidst troubled times.

Despite the cover of skulls & bones on the cover, our 10 yr old daughter loved this book and now wants to read the rest of the stories. I've been to the catacombs in Paris, and it was fun to talk about it with her (even showed her some of the pictures). She really enjoyed the mystery and suspense aspect of the book. This was a bit surprising since she still has trouble watching any movies that are remotely scary (PG-13 and up). I think anything that can make your kid excited to read more is a great book.

Many younger people grew up reading this set and the "Little House Set". What Little House did for the pioneer spirit, this set did for Nursing. The setting of the stories are after Cherry gets back from WWII. She has many more adventures. Part Adventure, part sluth and all Nurse(RN), Cherry not only does what is right, makes friends along the way, is of good moral and character, and solves little mysteries while being light hearted. I was excited when this set came back out, for the younger readers of today to have besides some of the garbage (yes might as well call someof it what it is), and have a fun character to read about. This tells and shows even how much being a RN over the years has changed, from at one time even having to stand till the doctor took their seats. The adventures are fun, Cherry the small town girl, who had huge dreams, and is making all them happen. Just remember that the sets are wrote after WWII, I hope this set inspires young readers to be a Nurse like it did so many of the readers now, more then some junk played on TV with bad acting and subplots and those goofy J&J commercials. Two thumbs up!
