On a trip to Oregon, the Alden children meet some SAR (search and rescue) teams. They are thrilled to discover that Watch has the skills required to become a rescue dog. They enthusiastically jump at the chance to train him and are thrilled when during an outing in the woods, Watch discovers a backpack filled with valuable jewelry. Suspecting the bag fell out of a plane, the young detectives set out to find its rightful owner.
It doesn’t take Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny long to uncover the whereabouts of the owner and crafter of the beautiful pieces. However, they soon realize that something is terribly wrong. The pilot in charge of transporting the expensive jewelry has disappeared. A necklace, the most treasured item in the bunch, is also missing. Once again, the Alden siblings put their deductive skills to work to solve yet another mystery.
The Fallen Treasure Mystery is filled with all the great things the Boxcar Children fans have come to expect from this wonderful series. I love how these books are written to teach children without them even realizing it. While they work to solve the mystery alongside the main characters, readers learn about the work SAR teams accomplish, as well as important life lessons such as honesty, hard work, and respect.
It was fun seeing Watch, who is always present in the Alden children’s lives, take on an even bigger role in this installment as they trained him in various search and rescue skills, which he then put to use by finding the backpack.
The Fallen Treasure Mystery is a story the whole family can enjoy, regardless of age.
