Four children whose parents had died are running away from their grandfather who they never met because they thought that he was mean. They find an old boxcar in the woods and they made it their home. They find a dump and they collected stuff for their home and liked living in the boxcar. When their grandfather does find them they discovered that he was really nice. He evens moves the boxcar to his house.
I liked this book very much because they have a lot of adventures. They also do a lot of things by their selves without grownups. I plan to read a lot of other Boxcar Children books.
