    This 39th book in the Boxcar Children's series involves a bit of a mystery while they are vacationing in a New England village. There is an old legend about a whaling ship that sank off the coast of Ragged Cove many years before near the Howling Cliffs in a bad storm. Since there was only one survivor, there was, and still is, an uncertainty about what really happened. Decendents of both the ship's Captain and a man reported to have led a mutiny aboard the Flying Cloud before it sank have been This 39th book in the Boxcar Children's series involves a bit of a mystery while they are vacationing in a New England village. There is an old legend about a whaling ship that sank off the coast of Ragged Cove many years before near the Howling Cliffs in a bad storm. Since there was only one survivor, there was, and still is, an uncertainty about what really happened. Decendents of both the ship's Captain and a man reported to have led a mutiny aboard the Flying Cloud before it sank have been at odds with each other, even a couple generations down the road. The delightful quartet of Alden siblings, ranging in age from 6 to 14, have such sincerity, honesty, humor, old fashioned good manners, thirst for knowledge, respect for others and each other, and outgoing personalities, that they befriend and engage even the grouchiest members of the community and contribute to finding the truth of this bit of the town's history. The Boxcar Children series, though originally published decades ago, are timeless chapter books covering such a wide range of adventures and topics, that even children who don't particularly like to read will be caught up in these stories. They are like a weekly wholesome family TV series. Highly recommended! My three children loved them in the 70's and 80's ( they are spread out over 15 years) and my grandchildren ( spread out beginning in the 90's) have been enjoying them as well, even down to the youngest ones now in elementary school. I find it exciting to see those worn books passed down from one generation to the next. A great series for summer reading, as there are well over 100 books with occasional pencil illustrations, running on the average about 120 to 140 or so pages in an easy to read font, with simple and understandable vocabulary for the targeted age group, but also with fun, educational facts.

    I have read The Boxcar Children the Ghost Ship Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner. I have finished this book on 12/16/12. This book is a mystery. What I liked about this book is that it kept me on my heels. There were twists and turns and was really suspenseful.

I have finished this book on 12/16/12. This book is a mystery. What I liked about this book is that it kept me on my heels. There were twists and turns and was really suspenseful. A couple of times in the story there was mysterious lights coming from Howling Cliff on the town of Ragged Cove in Massachusetts. They call it that because some people believe that they hear cries from people on a ship called the Flying Cloud. They believe these are signs from the ship that sunk close to town because of a mighty gale from the northeast. The ship rose in flames just before it started sinking. There was also a robbery in the sailing museum in town and the owner was nowhere to be found. I would use the words mysterious, suspenseful, and cool. Yes I would read more books by this author. I’m going to read more books by this author next quarter. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes kids and mysteries.

    One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

    My favorite part was when the bad man was caught by the police. The worst part was when the bad man tried to almost drown one of the girls.

    Re-read for nostalgic purposes, took about 30 minutes. Still enjoyable, though this one wasn't as fun as others.

    This was the 4th Boxcar book in our audio set from the library. I definitely have had my fill of the Boxcar Children for a while. My 2 oldest boys really enjoy them though.

    The kids find adults focused on some past event that has a mystery attached to it, something is robbed, and the kids save the day. These kids need to be studied!
