The Aldens search their home for hidden treasure.

Hidden behind the wall of their guest room, a mysterious journal leads the Aldens on a search for a valuable collection. Adapted from Gertrude Chandler Warner's story of the same name, this early reader allows children to start reading by themselves with a Boxcar Children classic.

Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today The Boxcar Children® series has more than one hundred books.

Liz Brizzi is a graduate of Otis College of Art and Design. She works as a graphic artist and illustrator based in Los Angeles.
