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.

I purchased these Audio CD's to help keep my Grandaughter interest in books. She struggles with reading and is behind for her age. She started out with the CD's and followed along with the books that we had purchased seperately. She played them over and over again. She just loves the stories. Before long I heard her reading the book on her own. I thought it was just from memory, but was quickly surprised that she was reading the whole book . These are all great stories read by the Author of the Books and keep kids very engaged! Since receiving these Audio CD's her reading level has jumped to steps or levels in school. I have already purchased 9-16 of the Audio CD's. Anything that helps children to love reading is a great tool. We have listened to them on short trips and the stories are easy to understand and fun to listen to. They also help you feel like you are part of the story and helping out Jack and Annie to solve the Mystery Adventures!

Sharon Creech has a good way with words. This book proved to be especially poignant to the boys I work with, most of whom have been adopted or are awaiting adoption. The story begins with brother and sister who are residents of yet another foster home, and in fact not a very nice one. They have dreams of somehow earning enough money to steal away some night and hop the train to anywhere. Instead they are paired on a temporary basis with a couple who is growing older and husband and wife each has an idea of the perfect big trip. But their ideas are different so they need travelling companions to travel separartely with them. The story has concepts of trust, mystery, adventure, and takes the reader on a journey that ends with more questions than answers but still an overall sense of caring and accomplishment. And it does have a sense of satisfying and caring completion. The chapters are very short so it will keep those who are not excited about reading moving ahead at a quicker pace than many other books. The boys I work with (ages 9-12) all loved the book as well as others by Ms. Creech. It works well as either a read aloud or read alone book and would make a nice gift for any preteen, especially if they are in a foster or adoptive home.

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.

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

I'm a mother of 3 kids in hockey- two of which are girls. It is hard to find a book on Girls Hockey so I was pleased to find one in fiction. My oldest daughter, 8, loves Nancy Drew and mysteries. This book was well-received by her.

My review is a little different because I did not see the product. It is a gift for my eight year old granddaughter. I asked her mother what she would be interested in and she told me what to order for her birthday. She has just began to read the Boxcar series and I was able to find the sets at Overstock which is what I wanted for her. She was very pleased with her gift and I was pleased with Overstock and their handling of the whole thing. She lives in a differnt state then we do so I was able to have it shipped and taken care of in good time.

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.
