The Mystery at Skeleton Point

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

The Mystery at Skeleton Point is book #91 in the Boxcar Children’s series. Gertrude Chandler Warner creates the series. Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny Alden are the Boxcar Children. They live with their grandfather.

In the young detective book, The Mystery at Skeleton Point. The Boxcar children and their grandfather take a road trip. They travel to visit Aunt Charlotte. She recently purchased a property called Skeleton Point. Its name is due to the large animal and human bone collection owned by the former owner. Townspeople swear they see skeletons walking the property at night.

Grandfather Alden and Aunt Charlotte leave to visit a sick relative. What is happening at Aunt Charlotte’s new property at night? Benny, Henry, Jessie and Violet decide to discover the truth. The siblings’ love and care for each other shines forth in the mystery book. In The Mystery at Skeleton Point, the Boxcar children use their wiles to protect each other as they solve the mystery. The young detectives gather evidence without the help from adults.

Young readers identify with the Alden children. They love adventures with family and friends. The Alden children do fun things like bike rides, have picnics and go swimming. Also, they experience independence from adult supervision. This is something children in the target age group 8-12 crave in their personal life. They believe they are capable of handling problems. The Boxcar Children series offer these experiences in the young detective series.

Gertrude Chandler Warner created the Boxcar Children series. She wrote the first nineteen books. The publisher continues the series with help from other writers. This young detective book written by a ghost writer is modern. For example, in the Bicycle Mystery, the Alden children ride bicycles. Yet, there is no mention of helmets and safety mirrors. The items are mentioned in the recently written The Mystery at Skeleton Point. Also, the later book offers the reader more tension and suspense.

Try The Mystery at the Crooked House #79. Join the boys and girls detectives in another mystery.
