    A nice addition to the series. An easy to listen to audiobook with a great narrator. Wonderful, fun characters and a sweet plot.

    When I started reading this book I wasn't sure what the adventure was going to be about, and as I continued to read I honestly got a little scared of what was going to happen next, and a few times I had to reassure myself that nothing graphic or demonic was going to happen.

The four children decided to visit one of their grandpa's friends who lived up the lake from them. While they are there they find all of these strange clues that don't seem to add up, and as a person who loves to interact with mystery and crime, I was puzzled with all of the clues they mentioned finding. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a fast read that also has some mystery and crime in it.

    This, the next in the series, is (as I have just discovered) the first not written by Warner, as she died after #19 and the series carried on without her. Honestly, I can tell the difference, and it's for the better. All four children are featured equally, which is a marked improvement over the Benny Show that the Boxcar books were becoming, and there's also a return to the children being genuinely helpful and useful, as they go to stay with a lonely, injured friend of their grandfather, so that This, the next in the series, is (as I have just discovered) the first not written by Warner, as she died after #19 and the series carried on without her.

The kids look after the garden and the animals and the house, and there's a mystery too, as always, and it's well-structured and interesting. The oddest thing is the kids seem to all be several years younger again, as they were in the first book, and not the aged-up versions of themselves that they had become by the last. I don't mind that, so long as the quality keeps up.

    (3.8) This is the first story that was written by a ghost writer and thankfully the writing doesn't show too much. However, we see that everyone has been de-aged and it seems to be set in its "modern day," aka 1978-1979. Though somewhat annoying, this allows for the different adventures to happen in the way that has become familiar to readers over the years. Recommended 8+ for scary situations.

    The Boxcar Children is a very good series for kids to read. The Haunted Cabin Mystery book was about the Aldens going to visit old Cap Lambert, their grandfather's friend. The Aldens (children) noticed that something was off at the Cap Lambert's cabin. They decided to go deeper and unravel the mysteries that were hidden in the cabin. This is a great mystery series to have in the classroom library that kids from 2rd graders can read on their own. The Boxcar Children is a very good series for kids to read.

    The first Boxcar Children story not written by Gertrude Chandler Warner! It's not bad, just very simplistic and not very scary at all. When I was kid, I had no idea that the majority of the Boxcar Children books had been ghost written using the original author's name, and now I'm curious as to who actually is writing them. Is it all the same person? Is it 20 different people? hmm... The first Boxcar Children story not written by Gertrude Chandler Warner! It's not bad, just very simplistic and not very scary at all.

    Boxcar Children number 20. After all the stuff I have been reading lately, it was nice to return to the Aldens. This was a cute little mystery that left you guessing until the end. Good misdirection and great resolution leaves you feeling good about old values. ​Reminds you that family is the most important thing. Recommended.

    A classic and well acclaimed series, recommended as a great series for young readers. The Boxcar Children invoke the enjoyment for mystery-solving and having a close relationship with family.

    Suddenly Henry is 14 and not in college? That was a little weird. But the story was still pretty good.

    this book was a fun but there were things that I just couldn't buy. for example, I dint believe that a bunch of children were well versed enough with wiring that they could create a switch to turn on all the lights in the barn from one place if it hadn't already been set up. I did like that they had to create a deliberate plan, but other stuff was just not believable. this book was a fun but there were things that I just couldn't buy. for example, I dint believe that a bunch of children were well versed enough with wiring that they could create a switch to turn on all the lights in the barn from one place if it hadn't already been set up.

    This is the first book in the series written by someone other than the original author so I wasn't expecting it to be as good. I could definitely tell the difference but it turned out to be fairly good. Children likely wouldn't notice much of a difference even though I did. I would much prefer Gertrude Chandler Warner but they did their best to try to imitate her tone.

    This is the first of the "new" boxcar children books, i.e. not written by the original author. Good enough for a kid, but not worth it for me to seek them all out. I do love the original 19 books, however. This is the first of the "new" boxcar children books, i.e. not written by the original author.

    I am currently reading this as a read aloud to my students! They love it, they constantly ask when we can read another chapter. They love the mystery and using the clues in the story to find out what is happening at the cabin!

    They were going to go to a island. But the caption got hurt. Everyone thought the house was haunted. But they found out it was just friends. I like that Benny was the first to find that it was a boy and girl. The caption found out it was his friends.

    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 :)
