Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny are back for another mystery. This time they are headed to the New Jersey shore to visit Mr. Hanson, their grandfather’s friend, who owns an amusement park. When they get there, the Alden siblings find that someone is vandalizing the place and sabotaging the rides. To complicate matters, someone has spread the rumor that Hanson’s amusement park isn’t safe and now families are afraid to go. Determined to help their friend, the Aldens start investigating those with ties to the park. In the process, the children meet an eclectic group of people; several of them have reasons to want Mr. Hanson to fail.
The Boardwalk Mystery is another good read for Boxcar Children Mystery fans. True to the series, young readers are presented with valuable life lessons such as respect, kindness, and hard work. Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny give up their vacation time to help a friend in need. Readers also discover that vandalism affects others and it’s important to take care of public property. Parents don’t have to worry about handing this book to their children.
