Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny are orphans. The only way they can stay together as a family is to make it on their own. So when the children find an abandoned boxcar in the woods, they decide to call it home—and become the Boxcar Children! Adapted from the feature film of the same name, this early reader allows children to step into reading with the story that launched the beloved Boxcar Children Mysteries.
