In this all-new very special mini-series, the Aldens have been recruited by a secret society to return lost artifacts and treasures to their rightful locations—all around the world! After finding a painted turtle figurine, the Aldens are introduced to the Silverton family and Reddimus Society, a secret guild whose mission is to return lost artifacts and treasures to the sites they were taken from. The Aldens board a private train to New Mexico to return the turtle to its original home, and they encounter enemies of Reddimus along the way! The trip is a success… but instead of returning home, there’s a last-minute change in plans. The Boxcar Children must continue the mission for the society and deliver more things, all around the globe!

                The characters in this book are Benny, Henry, Jessie, and Violet. The children find out about an agency that recovers lost artifacts. The children are sent on a mission that includes: New Mexico, a train ride, and a black market seller. A reason I didn't really like the book, however, is because some parts were confusing and boring.

                  I read this book with my sister, and we both love it! We can't wait to read the next one together. It is about 4 siblings, Henry, Jessie, Violet & Benny. They start working for a top-secret organization. It is very exciting and confusing whom to trust.
