The Aldens are helping save an old library that's about to be torn down. If they fix it up, it might be given landmark status! But after all their hard work, it's very clear someone is trying to destroy the library. But who?

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
This book had one significantly frightening part towards the end. I would not recommend this for younger listeners. The style differs greatly from the first 19 books written by the original author. To be specific one of the characters is under direct physical threat from the antagonist. This caught us off-guard as it is not the usual style of these books.
This story was good I love mystery's. It was scary in some places. I like it
"Very Scary for kids"
The plot has a stranger going into the kids house, and later putting a bag over one of the girls heads to kidnap/assault her. Not a good book for young kids.
Maybe it was okay for its time, but unlike some of the other boxcar mysterious there is a "mean stranger" who stalks, invades, and assults the kids.
The characters were differentiated, but the falsetto for Bennie is very unpleasant to listen to.
I would have cut the assault scene.
Don't get this to entertain your little kids on a road trip
