Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny used to live alone in a boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather, and they are going to be on the radio! The Alden children are helping out at a radio station, and they're going to be actors in a live mystery show. Benny is especially excited—he gets to play the part of the ghost dog! But it seems the ghost dog might not be the only spook at the station. When strange things keep happening, people in town say the station is haunted! Can the Boxcar children catch the radio ghost before the station's listeners are scared away?

About Gertrude Chandler Warner

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut on April 16, 1890. Due to her poor health, she never finished high school and studied with a tutor. During World War I, a shortage of teachers prompted the local school board to hire her to teach first grade, a position she held for over 30 years. She wrote the first Boxcar book in 1924, while home recuperating from an illness, but the version most people are familiar with was originally published in 1942. The Alden children became so popular that she wrote 19 adventures about them including Surprise Island, Mystery Ranch, and Snowbound Mystery. She died at age 89 August 29, 1979, but the Boxcar Children are still being written about by a team of writers faithful to her vision.
