Boxcar Children #4: Mystery Ranch – Book Review


A review for the fourth Boxcar Children book. The Boxcar Children learn they have a new relative: Aunt Jane! Jane is a bedridden woman, who is starving a maid to death, despite the fact that she has absolutely no physical control over the maid whatsoever.

The girls visit Aunt Jane, and she instantly morphs from mean old lady to nice person. She’s SO nice, she gives the ranch to the Boxcar Children.

What about the mystery, you ask? It is an awful mystery. At no point do we meet the culprits, and a random stranger solves the mystery, by pure coincidence. This all happens offscreen, so readers don’t get to see it.

My score for this book is a 1 out of 10. It made me stop reading the series as a kid, and after re-reading it, I can’t blame Kid Michael for making that decision.

  1. When I watched this review, I got the sense that the writers didn't care much about the mystery and only cared about the pointless subplots that have nothing to do with the story in this book. I could also say the same thing about the previous one. I'd give this book a 0/10.

  2. It's so funny because I usually agree with all your reviews, but I loved this book…. LOL read it countless times….

  3. OH MY GOD. My sister and I would always watch your Nancy Drew videos when we were little and would crack up laughing (at something about your mom making mac and cheese? – That's all I remember?) I'm glad your still making these videos

  4. Maybe Aunt Jane has the same "illness" as Charlie's Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka…
