When the Aldens take a summer trip to the New England coast, they have a fun place to stay: a lighthouse! But strange things happen after it gets dark—an unknown woman is seen walking around, and Watch, the Aldens' dog, wakes up growling late at night. Can the Boxcar Children shed light on a seaside mystery?

    While the boxcar children head home from their great-aunt's new farm, they find a lighthouse and move in for a few weeks. There are a couple of seemingly unsavory characters in town who turn out to be father and son. Something is going on in the summer kitchen of the lighthouse and the Boxcar children have to become friends with two people who don't want any contact in order to solve this mystery.

    I am in the process of re-reading the original 19 in order. This book takes place immediately following book 7, The Woodshed Mystery. It is the same summer and as the family is driving home from a visit to nearby Aunt Jane's new home, they decide to stop at the beach where they find a lighthouse for sale. They end up renting instead of buying and this is where they stay for the next couple of weeks. While the last book had one of the finest mysteries to date in the series, this one is hard pressed to even find a mystery within its pages. A truly charming story which I thoroughly enjoyed but the mystery consisted of wondering what the boy next door was up to and figuring it out all very quickly. Of course, they didn't tell the boy they knew what he was up to but that's not exactly mysterious! This one contains quite a bit of interesting information on sea life and seafood and Warner actually makes a political statement on her thoughts on the space race. She thinks that time and money would be better spent on exploring the sea (for the purposes of feeding the world) than on exploring outer space. A new character is introduced and ends up going to Henry's college so I expect we'll see him in future books. A perfectly enjoyable story about the family, has the family very gently "roughing it" in an old lighthouse but not exactly a mystery.

    This story is about a family who goes on a vacation to a lighthouse. Evey night their dog wakes up growling and they notice a unknown lady on the beach. So, they then start to put the pieces of the puzzle togather.This is a very suspensful story, once you get started reading this you don't want to put it down. This a great book for all mystery lovers.A fun activity to do with this story would be to have kids read part of the book then have them try to anticapte the ending. Also, they can read the book and write a report on it.
