After a bit of a website issue which has now been resolved (fingers crossed) here we are with a long awaited book review from our mini book club of two… Gavin and I have finished the 6th book in Gertrude Chandler Warner’s Boxcar Children….. Blue Bay Mystery.
The Blue Bay Mystery has uprooted the children once again for an exotic location, this time with Grandpa in tow! I have to say… the man is creative at keeping his kids busy. There was a wonderful section on a large ship where the kids school as they travel. (I may be a bit biased on that one).
I found this to be a super quick read for myself, not so for Gavin. But I enjoyed my few hours of escape into the world of the Boxcar Children. An unusual adventure with a bit of a mystery, be prepared to suspend adult disbelief and enjoy the coincidences and favourable circumstances. I think we are on total agreement, Gavin and I, read these in order or risk spoiling characters and events!
And now for Gavin! Beware! He can spoil!
This book had some new friends and an old friend. I like that there was a jungle but I wish there had been monkeys. I wish they had not ended the book so quickly, I wanted to know more of what happened when they got back. I missed the dog because he wasn’t there. I still want to read every book!
