The Mystery of the Missing Painting (I found a typo in this book) The Boxcar Children Henry, Jessie, Violet, Benny and their grandfather James are at home thinking of what to do. Jessie said they should clean the boxcar because they hadn’t cleaned it in a while James stayed inside while the kids cleaned their boxcar. As they cleaned they were talking about their grandfather’s birthday. Violet said they should dress up we have some costumes in the attic. After they cleaned up they went up into the The Mystery of the Missing Painting (I found a typo in this book) The Boxcar Children Henry, Jessie, Violet, Benny and their grandfather James are at home thinking of what to do. Jessie said they should clean the boxcar because they hadn’t cleaned it in a while James stayed inside while the kids cleaned their boxcar. As they cleaned they were talking about their grandfather’s birthday. Violet said they should dress up we have some costumes in the attic. After they cleaned up they went up into the attic to see what was up there. Jessie found a painting sitting on a chair and she suspected it was their grandmother wearing a necklace. They went downstairs to talk to their grandfather and he told them a story about him giving their grandmother the necklace for a marriage present. He had a professional designer make it. One day it was lost and never found. The next morning they decided to go to Aunt Jane’s house and talk to her about the necklace. Violet drew an exact picture of it in her sketch book. They took the bus to her house which was three hours away. After they talked with Aunt Jane, they went to the museum. When they got there, a man greeted them and said his name was Mr. Mason. They asked him if he had a necklace just like Violet’s drawing. He brought them into a room. In the room there was a case with a beautiful necklace in it. There was a tag on it that said “Donated by Ms. Loraine Newton.” They compared it to Violet’s drawing. It looked exactly the same. They went to Ms. Newton’s house and knocked. A woman opened it and they asked her where they could find Lorraine Newton. “She’s on the back porch,” the woman replied. They went to the back porch and found an old woman. They asked her if she had donated a necklace to the museum. She said “Yes, my son stole it and I gave it to the museum because I didn’t want him to go to jail.” They went back to Aunt Jane’s house and called their grandfather. They said he should come over and a few hours later he was there. The children told him their story and said they should go to the museum. They did. They got their grandmother’s necklace back and went home. When they got there, they celebrated James’ Birthday.

    I like this book! It is engaging and hold your breath the entire time. I like how the story isOne ministry after another mystery. The only thing it’s hard for me to believe is The bad guys just turn over easily at the very end, yet they demonstrated such cold Ness towards the boxer children and the beginning. I think there is always a fine line between trying to probe into somebody’s life and just let it be and do nothing. That just means the Boxer children really want to know the truth but a lo I like this book! It is engaging and hold your breath the entire time.

I think there is always a fine line between trying to probe into somebody’s life and just let it be and do nothing. That just means the Boxer children really want to know the truth but a lot of times they struggle whether they can just talk to the person that they suspect directly or show up in front of their house directly or not. It’s very adventurous, And I like how boxer children support and encourage each other and work together as a team. I love to see more books from boxer children.

I think showing the characters perseverance and true interest in getting to the bottom of the mystery makes the reader think how they would act in the same scenario or even would it might feel like to be treated the way they were in the story. Along the way at every event I began to imagine if I would have done the same thing or what I might have done differently than the characters when searching for the necklace.

    The book was nice but it was not that good at the beginning so I rated it 4 stars. Then when it gets to the the middle the mystery already starts I was so interested then they find out what happens. Then at the end they rest and act like that was the end of the mystery.

    The boxcar kids find an old painting of their grandmother which leads to the mysteriously missing necklace she owned. *Docked for curator's lack of morals i.e. lying, stalking, theft, etc. Not recommended for children ages 5-8; okay for children ages 8-12, if it's discussed afterwards.

    These written after Ms. Warner's death, are not nearly as good. This mystery was downright irritating. These written after Ms. Warner's death, are not nearly as good. This mystery was downright irritating.

    Interesting mystery, important to address stereotypes, not great for discussion, could talk about characters relationships/ motivation, themes: determination, forgiveness

    I've read alot of these books when I was younger and I just wanted to say, I don't know why. They were really boring and it took me forever to read them because I could never really get into them. I've read alot of these books when I was younger and I just wanted to say, I don't know why.

    Good for low/struggling students-large print and each chapter ended on a clue or some suspense, thus keeping students very engaged

    O. likes these a lot. I'm not as much of a fan. It's fun to discuss the possibilities of the mystery with him, though. He really gets into it. O. likes these a lot. I'm not as much of a fan. It's fun to discuss the possibilities of the mystery with him, though. He really gets into it.

    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 :)
