    This takes place in the spring/summer. The children help their grandfather's friend with his garden after he breaks his arm. The story involves a community garden, rabbits, vandalism, and an upcoming fair. The rabbits and gardening were interesting, but the mystery was okay. Also, I wanted to have the fair in the story.

    Pretty low stakes. I’m generally not opposed to that but it seems that Ms. Warner was running out of fuel. The story involves the stealing of some vegetables. Yea. That’s it. Vegetables. Anyway some guy with a three wheeler (like narwhals, are those even real?) is busting up cabbages so he can become an Anytime Fitness franchisee. Not really what I’m used to from the BC series. I guess Benny did learn about veggies though.

    Listened to the audiobook with Emma and Will. We had a day where we spend a good bit of time in the car and this was on our library's app, which is how I settled on it. We listened to the whole thing in a day, and they enjoyed it. But I wonder sometimes why I keep coming back to these books, they are painful to listen to (but even more so to read). I think I had such fond memories of them growing up that it's hard to reconcile those memories with reading these as an adult. I think we loved the i Listened to the audiobook with Emma and Will.

I think I had such fond memories of them growing up that it's hard to reconcile those memories with reading these as an adult. I think we loved the independence and initiative of the children, and of course the mystery aspect. These are all things my kids take away from the books as well. It helped our time in the car pass quietly and without arguing, so I'm calling that a win, even if it wasn't the best book :)

    We wanted something for our kids to listen to during our vacation in the car as a family. Our oldest (a second grader) loves a good mystery and this seem like a good series to try out. While the story was simple enough for our kindergarden to follow, the mystery was a little easy to figure out for our oldest. We enjoyed it, but I'm not sure enough to come back to the series in lieu of other better choices for us. It was good, clean and wholesome but I would say a bit generic for our tastes.

Due to my geeky influence, we tend to like things like sci-fi or fantasy (Dr. Who, Star Wars, The Avengers, Harry Potter, etc.).

    The Garden Thief is a fun mystery filled with lots of wonderful lessons for young readers. They can learn anything from the importance of helping one’s neighbors to some of the things entailed in keeping a garden. Don’t be surprised if, after reading this book, your child asks you if he/she can thin your carrots or build trellises for the peas. This is definitely a book I would strongly recommend to young readers. Review copy provided by publisher. Thank you!

    I did not especially like this book or the mystery. The original Boxcar Children were resourceful and inventive, but they did not solve mysteries. If they had, they would have worked out why their grandfather never visited them or why the bakery owner was after them. They didn't, and they just weren't curious enough to care. So the mystery series doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I did not especially like this book or the mystery.

    The garden thief is stealing food from the garden, crazy right. The kids are going to hunt them down just like a rabbit *wink wink.

    I loved THE BOX CAR CHILDREN series when I was a kid, and I'm glad Violet and her siblings finally found a permanent home with their grandfather and that he's not the awful man they thought he was.
