I liked this book because Benny was so funny. For example, Benny was always hungry. One time Benny ate his pancakes with salt because there was a salt and sugar mix-up, but he didn't care. I also like how the characters got introduced in a sneaky way. Everyone seems suspicious. My favorite part is when Jessie got a crush on the pool manager, Mike. She had acted so shy around him and that wasn't like her at all.
This book is a part of a series called The Boxcar Children. In every book the children make friends, work together, and there is always a big mystery. I recommend this book to kids in third to fifth grade. I never wanted to put this book down and I think you will feel the same way.
