While all four children were walking in the woods they discovered some mysteries. Do you suppose they will solve those mysteries? Learn more by reading Mystery Ranch.

I enjoyed this book because there are lots of mysteries you can look forward to. I like a lot of Boxcar Children books but I think this is one of my favorites yet. I also enjoy Mystery Ranch because it showed teamwork and taught me a lesson to always work as a team and you will get it done faster.

I recommend this book for people who have enjoyed The Boxcar Children before. I also recommend this book to people who enjoy mysteries and an adventure to discover. I think this book is worth reading for kids who spend most of their time reading and for kids who can't set a book down.
