The Boxcar Children

Written by Gertrude Chandler Warner • Illustrated by Likate Deal

Reviewed by R.B. J. (age 8)

The boxcar children are four children who are orphans. The youngest, Benny, is 5. Henry is the oldest. Violet is 10. Jessie is the second oldest.

The children find a boxcar and turn it into a home. They want to survive on their own. I like this book because it is adventurous. The characters I like the most were Benny and Henry. I felt excited when I read it and couldn't stop reading.

I recommend this book to adventurous kids.
