I read The Ultimate Book of Sharks. It has close up encounters with sharks; cool facts I never knew before, and the top ten most fantastic sharks. The best part of the book was reading the encounters. My dad and I looked up some of the events after I read about them.
The Boxcar children are given valuable treasures which are later taken from their house. This begins the interesting mystery which has train rides, jeep chases, mysterious phone calls, and intense chases. It's a great read.
I really like the Boxcar Children because its full of mysteries to solve. The kids solve every one. My favorite character is Benny, the youngest because he's always the one who figures out the mystery.
