The Boxcar Children Collection

The Boxcar Children; Surprise Island; The Yellow House Mystery

The Boxcar Children Mysteries have captured the imaginations of emerging readers for more than sixty years! Join the four Alden siblings on three exciting adventures—The Boxcar Children, Surprise Island, and The Yellow House Mystery .

The Boxcar Children

Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, four orphaned brothers and sisters, suddenly appear in a small town. No one knows who these young wanderers are or where they have come from. Frightened to live with a grandfather they have never met, the children make a home for themselves in an abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life for themselves–until Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her.

Surprise Island

Now living with their grandfather, the orphaned Alden Children spend the summer exploring their own private island. There's a mysterious stranger on the island who must keep his identity a secret—but that's not the only surprise in store for the Boxcar Children!

The Yellow House Mystery

Grandpa Alden tells Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny of the curious circumstances in which the yellow house became vacant over forty years ago. Determined to solve the mystery, the children uncover a trail of clues that leads them to memories of their boxcar days.
