What makes the 1924 Boxcar Children book so special?

The main reason the 1924 edition is so special is that it is filled with very fine details that are so descriptive, you feel as though you are there! You can visualize everything. It really brings the story and the characters to life. You get a better feel for the atmosphere and the way the children look, feel, live, etc. The food they make is so descriptive, it might even make your mouth water or leave you craving what they just ate.

You get a better understanding of their real beginning, their locations as they traveled, and much more! The details that are within the pages of the 1924 edition of, The Box-Car Children book cannot be found in any other edition of this book title!  This is the one and only edition that has extremely specific information that pertains to every aspect of their lives!

Did you know that in the 1924 edition... some of the names were different? Including their last name! They weren't the Aldens in this edition. Their last name was Cordyce. There are many more details that are far different than what you read in the 1942 and 1950 editions.

The 1924 edition is sure to be your favorite, as the descriptive nature of the writing by Gertrude Chandler Warner gives you a whole new "enlightened" understanding of who these children are, where they came from, more about their parents (mainly the dad), and a whole new feeling and perspective about, "The Boxcar Children". All in the way that the author, Ms. Warner, originally wrote the story before she revised it in 1942 to make it easier for younger children to read.

If you loved The Boxcar Children as a child... you owe it to yourself to read the 1924 edition! You will be so happy you did!! :)
