The Boxcar Children Guide to Adventure: A How-To for Mystery Solving, Make-It-Yourself Projects, and Moreby Albert Whitman and Company
Synopses & Reviews
The Boxcar Children have long been known for being creative and resourceful. This hardcover book is filled with fun how-to guides for everyday adventures. It includes tips and tricks for mystery solving (how to make invisible ink and create secret codes), travel (how to pack a suitcase; how to take great snapshots), and enjoying the great outdoors. Each of the four Boxcar Children has their own section--practical advice from Jessie, a "roughing it" guide from Henry, crafts and art projects from Violet, and recipes from Benny! A great gift for Boxcar fans.
A compendium of how-to guides, games, project and craft ideas, recipes, and tips based on the Boxcar Children mysteries.
About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by its success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden Children.
