GUEST REVIEWER - Matthew B - Age 10
I gave this book a 4 star rating because I like this series.  I like this series because it has good mysteries and it is funny sometimes  too.

I also enjoyed this book because I liked the characters.  The characters in this book were Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny.  Benny was my favorite character because he was funny. One time Benny snuck cookies that Mrs. MgGregor baked for them, and I like to do that too.

I enjoyed reading this book because I like a good mystery.  In this book the kids start to believe that the boxcar was haunted.  I kept reading to the ends because I wanted to find out if it really was.

If you like the Magic Tree House series, you will also like this book. 
Rating: 4/5 Stars


  1. Look at you, Matt!!! You're a real blogger like your mom. I like how you explained yourself so clearly. My favorite part is when you added a little about yourself...The fact that you sneak cookies, too.(smile) Outstanding job, Matt. I'll read your blogs anytime :) Double thumbs up! Ms. Carroll
