A Day Away lDerness without a care in the world They revisit the Easter Island statue so that they can go rock climbing on the priceless artifact having totally forgotten Grandfather s earlier warning about needing to avoid brokenegs since they re miles from medical help Of course Jessie has probably taken some sort of first aid course as a part of her effort to be the world s greatest homemaker and she s Memoir of a Misfit likely anxious to try out her new skillset so maybe she s encouraging the others to flirt with danger I kept waiting for Indiana Jones to spring out of the woods and yank them off of the statue with his whip this book would be AMAZING if Indy was hiding in the woods but no suchuck All of the other Aldens scramble up the rocks Looking for the Toffees leaving poorittle Violet to fend for herself Fortunately Mike remembers that she is a special snowflake melting in the tropical heat and he helps her climb up I d Raising Gods Girl like to point out that Mike is probably seven years old and Violet is around twelve but from all the description of how strong Mike is you d think that Arnold Schwarzenegger in his Conan days is helping her destroy archaeological evidence instead of her kid brother s best friend OMG YOU GUYS There is a STUMP over here on this mountain and I know it didn t grow here because there are stones all around the edges to hold it in place and also we are sitting on a slab of rock Detective Benny explains the obvious to everyone else as usual What an AMAZING observation I WONDER WHAT IT S FOR INDEED Why would there be a stump here that didn t grow here but it is so obviously here for a reason Thankfully Henry cuts this tiresome babble off by standing on the stump Lo and behold he finds a cave that is an EXACT REPLICA of the dear old boxcar right down to Benny s pink cup Hello Puppetmaster We ve missed youBenny sees somethingeaping through the trees and he goes tearing off through the jungle after it In a scene remarkably reminiscent of his wandering off into the woods after the hermit in The Yellow House Mystery no one notices that he s gone In this case it s even ridiculous since they re halfway up a mountain on a The Gulag Handbook ledge that I m assuming he has toeap off of in order to track a possible cannibal in the trees He s also off of any discernible path so I m thinking that he s making a considerable amount of noise as he crashes through the wilderness This should give you an idea of how engrossed everyone is in watching Mike try out the bed in the boxcar caveAnyway Benny is following the mystery man in the trees sadly not the original Mystery Man Mr Carter That would have been an amazing twist Oh hi guys It s me Mr Carter JH s personal uranium hunter and general fixer I m just hiding here in the trees masuerading as a cannibal and The Beckoning Lady (Albert Campion living in a cave eerily reminiscent of your former home when he falls into a giant brush covered pit Most people would be alarmed to be trapped in a pit on a remote island possibly populated by cannibals after having run off into the jungle without telling anyone where they were going Not Benny though Oh I seem to have fallen into a deep pit Lucky it isn t filled with snakes Okay Iied He s actually glad it s not full of water but that s stupid since water would break the fall and he d be closer to the top If he was concerned about crocodiles or piranhas then yeah maybe but just water Don t be an idiot Benny Fortunately a shaggy head pops over the rim in just a few minutes Hi Benny I m Peter I see you ve fallen into my trap Instead of just coming out to meet potential rescuers after determining that you weren t cannibals or rapists I ve been watching you from the trees and stealing your food for weeks Now that I ve caught you and you seem to be unharmed it seemed Will in the World like a good time to introduce myself Most people would be alarmed that they ve beeniving in close proximity to a stalkery Peeping Tom esue thief for the past few weeks but Benny is totally nonchalant about it Sneaking Grandfather s booze is really taking the edge off Also what was Peter planning on trapping in this giant hole Lions Tigers Bears Lars has gone on and on about how there aren t any dangerous animals on the island so it seems June Fourth Elegies like a waste of effort to dig the hole Also you d be a sitting duck for predators while you were digging it so you d be deadong before the trap became useful if there were any maneaters on the island Also what did he dig this huge pit with Shells This whole business stinks and not just because Peter hasn t had a bath in six months I m hypothesizing that Peter so ong removed from social interaction felt he needed an ice breaker Walking into their camp and introducing himself was too intimidating but he felt that greeting them after they he felt that greeting them after they into a giant hole that he created would be the perfect opportunity to make polite introductions At east in that scenario they d be at his mercyPeter and Benny become best friends in a normal two minute span and the group The Confabulist leads him back to their huts Despite being shipwrecked foress than seven months and only alone for three weeksread the rest of the review here It s just the nostalgia that hook me up to this book the boys Der Illusionist loved it so did i The alden family go on an adventure that grandfather s friend has been to that they think is now deserted or so they think The island seems to be covering a mystery that they need to uncover And so to speak benny finds something awesome At first peter isike a ghost for the alden family And then they find out that he might be a bird And then they find out that he s a boy that was deserted on this island to and was occupied by a man and might have he s a boy that was deserted on this island to and was occupied by a man and might have his family on the boat wreck And they found out that peter has the Enticing (PI Men to the Rescue last name as benny s teacher but there not relatives My thoughts on this book is I reallyiked it it was good from the start and in my opinion it was better than the others and i really suggest it to people The thoughts I had when I first started reading it was oh it s just another box car book I Spring Comes to Sanctuary (Welcome to Sanctuary, liked it when I found out it was so exciting It was a struggle for me to get through but my 6 yoiked it so I m rating it based on his enjoyment Mrs Kampf s Reading Small Group We Ask the Past loved that it was a mystery but not too serious of a mystery it was aot of fun It gave Riding Class (Saddle Club, lots of clues throughout that allowed the reader to make predictions about what was going to happen The clues were found in very unusual places There is aot of action such as ittle Benny falling into a whole It was definitely a five star mystery because it had a sweet and happy ending We also enjoyed the climax as it was very exciting "we really oved the setting of this book "really Different Class loved the setting of this book all who doesn tove a tropical island My Short Stories by Roald Dahl love of reading started when i was young and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada an organization that passes them on to children in the community They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause If yourocal I encourage you to check them out For those Goldilocks the Three Bears living further a fieldook in your own community their may already be a similar program in place And if not you can always help start onehttpspreadthewordnevadaorgMyself I go out on the weekends andshop thrift store and bulk book ots to rescue books and donate them Sometimes I l find a book I remember reading when I was young and will read it again before passing it onI don t rate these books using my normal scale instead I give most of them three stars This isn t a Criticism of the book simply my way of rating them as good for children.

Summary Blue Bay Mystery The Boxcar Children #6Really I Look Up To... Michelle Obama liked this one it feltike the first book in the series didThe Alden s are stranded on a tropical island They need to get their own food make their own dishes and even build their own shelters This was no shipwreck though they did it on purpose As always Grandfather knows how his grand kids Doctor Extraño love to fend for themselves so this time around he orchestrates a tropical getaway for them This book is special though because unlike the previous books this time Grandfather Alden comes along for the adventure After five books of the Grandfather being almostike a part time character it is exciting to have him stick it out for the whole story Now it is easy to see that this self sufficiency runs in the family One surprise on this island the Alden s discover that they are not alone 455I have to keep reminding myself these were written and published in the 1960 s so there s old fashioned views of women and uite a few errors that weren t caught by the publishers but i don t know i still ove this series i grew up on both the boxcar children and the harry potter series This takes place during the school year The family takes a trip to the South Pacific near Tahiti They spend a week on a secluded island with a cousin and a friend of their grandfather s The mystery involves a shipwreck and a talking bird Last time the children knew Grandfather was up to something because he seemed angry In an interesting I m using the adjective oosely here change of events this time they know something is up because he s happy he s joking with Benny and it s an event to be remarked on and remembered and followed closely At Never Tell length It really gives you some insight into day to dayife with Grandfather when any hint of emotion is an anomaly to be noted I can only imagine that his normal state of being is a kind of catatonic drugged out bliss with blank eyes and a frozen expression of nothingnessThis time Grandfather has surprised his brood of orphans with a trip to the South Seas Not on a cruise ship as you d imagine but instead on a freighter probably running illicit cargo to Tahiti Grandfather had planned on just taking them to San Francisco and then he considered Tahiti probably to sell as house slaves but THEN his friend tells him about first mate Lars Larson Gertie s not too creative about naming people It s probably where Benny gets his skillz Remember Potato Camp Lars got shipwrecked on this deserted island for an indeterminate amount of time and it was so much fun that he wants to go back FOR VACATION I think Lars has PTSD Sidebar in another interesting insight of Life with James Henry LWJH from now on when the kids come in to meet Lars for the first time Grandfather announces that he s their friend from now on He just decrees it so and no one bats an eye Let s take a poll about why we think that he declares Lars their friend so saith JH Feminism is for Everybody let it be written instead ofetting them decide if they actually want to be friends with this middle aged stranger who has appeared in their Deterring Democracy living room and has whispered conversations with their grandfather behind closed doors He calls them all Mr and Miss so he knows his place This is probably why they don t have friendsAnyway what better place to send your grandchildren than a deserted UNCHARTED island where no one can find them And for some reason Mike Wood is also going apparently Benny is the only one that has friends In Surprise Island all the other children had ateast one other friend but I think that they were just rentals Grandfather has been corresponding with Mike but not his mother I presume about the trip Benny mentions in passing that he had noticed his childlike scrawl on incoming envelopes but I guess nothing about Grandfather exchanging Comet in Moominland (The Moomins, letters with a seven year old seemed mysterious Aren t these kids supposed to be inuisitive Grandfather is a TYCOON and nothing about him makes it seemikely that he d have any interest in being Mike s pen pal Nonetheless apparently they ve been corresponding for months I suspect that Mike has some dirt on Grandfather possibly something about an entire town suffering from uranium poisoning and JH is trying to placate him with a fabulous vacation Perhaps a vacation where a small boy could easily go astray and get eft behind Or shipwrecked Or eaten by the sharks that abound in Blue Bay PROBLEM SOLVEDThe most exciting part of the trip is sharks that abound in Blue Bay PROBLEM SOLVEDThe most exciting part of the trip is they will all be missing school but Grandfather doesn t want them to miss out on education he knows that his grandchildren are too dense to catch up with the rest of the class if they re out for than two days So he has their teachers create uniue textbooks for each child individually bound color coded and stamped with their names in gold REAL GOLDOf course the books are violet for Violet red for Benny green for Henry and blue for Jessie because everything they own is one single shade Even their suitcases follow their stringent color guidelines Do you think Grandfather can t tell them apart unless they are wearing their assigned color Or he s just OCD and ikes everything to match It s very Captain Von Trappe of him minus the piercing whistle He obviously chooses color coding instead since the whistle would probably aggravate his hangover and you can see colors when you just barely open your eyesNaturally Grandfather flies the children to the ship on his private jet Mike Wood is waiting unaccompanied on the airstrip his mother probably sick with worry back at the mine unable to make a single pie Frozen pie probably sick with worry back at the mine unable to make a single pie Frozen pie and cans of filling are going to waste back at Mike s Mother s Place We re assuming that the handsome Mr Carter took care of brokering this deal on Grandfather s behalf and he Menneskefluene (K2 ll also be in charge of making sure that Mike keeps uiet when he gets back I m pretty sure that he is in charge of doing JH s dirty workEvery morning Grandfather rings a school bell and every day fortuitously whatever the children see in the ocean is exactly what is outlined that day in their specialized textbooks It sike Grandfather knows the future OR CONTROLS ITHe s also arranged for them to Nazi Gold look at some seaweed Joe probably pointed out how much they enjoyed naming the different kinds of seaweed red seaweed pink seaweed etc not the actual names back on Surprise Island and Grandfather uses this as an excuse to distract them while he occupies himself elsewhere on the ship Kids Look at this bag of seaweed I ve brought a microscope so you canook at it UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL LIKE to be sure that you ve assigned the proper colors to each bit Then you can divvy it up amongst yourselves based on the Alden Family Color Coding Scheme The most exciting part of the trip comes when they get to help Lars pack the Mr Majeika and the School Inspector lifeboat for the trip to the island OMG we LOVE TO PACK THINGS Jessie shouts with a maniacal gleam in her eyes Dry milk Canned meat Canned beans Things in cans are MY FAVORITE Benny exclaims with gleeThis is the part of the story where I become certain there are drugs somewhere on that boat Don t even get me started on Benny and Mike getting in a fight about who can eat breadThe group heads out into theifeboat and makes it to the island in about three seconds Lars warns them not to swim in the bay because they will get eaten by killer sharks This is of course the bay that they ve all just been neck deep in dragging the boat to shore I am disappointed to realize that Grandfather is uncharacteristically accompanying them on this trip What The Aldens don t do things as a family This is Grandfather s summertim.

E of debauchery There is only one explanation Grandfather is trying out a cheap rehab program Unwise as being around his grandchildren 247 will surely drive him to drink Fortunately there is sugarcane on this island so if he gets desperate he can always try to rig up a still out of some shells and a coconut husk The whole point of the vacation is that the kids ike to make something of nothing you can t make this stuff up and what better way to apply themselves than to help old JH get his fixPredictably the next twenty pages describe dinner You wouldn t think that amount of writing would be necessary to describe picking bananas and opening cans of beans but you d be wrong Everyone decides to carve themselves a spoon except Violet of course who is too delicate And then Jessie finds the perfect place to wash the dishes You can tell this is a real vacation because Jessie The Train Robbers lets everyone wash their own dishes She is really taking it easy Remember her despair about washing the dump dishes in cold water By now she s decided that it s totally fine to eat out of shells that they found on the beach and rinsed in the ocean Aittle fish poo never hurt anyone It s all organic right She and Violet are pretty excited about having washed them in salt water maybe they think that saltyclean Obviously their specialized textbooks didn t contain details about how too much salt No Reason To Die leads to heart disease Or maybe they did and they re trying to send Grandfather to an early grave out in the wilds of the uncharted Tahiti adjacent Pacific If they re smart theyl cut Lars in on the deal for a small percentage of their inheritanceThe next morning Grandfather wakes up craving his fix Gertrude uses the euphemism coffee but we all know the truth Luckily for him Violet only Naked Risk (Shatterproof lives for other people s approval and she has smuggled some in How delightful Now Grandfather will never get clean In the meantime Violet has nothing to hem since her secret package was full of coffee and I m willing to bet that it s driving her to distraction I hope that Grandfather appreciates her sacrifice when he sobers up and sees her unraveling the blankets for threadAfter breakfast the children go exploring and unsurprisingly find an enormous Easter island type statue in about five seconds This priceless archeological find hardly phases our heroes who are mostly just interested in finding tidal pools and colored seaweed Benny does make a special note of a drinking shell next to the spring though so he s got his priorities in order No one even thinks about how much their archaeologist cousins Joe and Alice wouldove this Easter Island esue find either Joe practically peed his pants with excitement about the arrowheads on Surprise Island Imagine how he d feel about a giant statue Of course he and Alice are probably making it rain back at Alden Manor while they re staying there unsupervised so they could probably care Raking The Ashes less about the statue Now that I think about it they didn t really care about the arrowheads either as evidenced by the whole dynamite scenarioIn the next ten minutes about fifteen mysterious things have happened including an unripe coconut falling from a tree and the discovery of what appears to be installation artwork in a tide pool If that wasn t enough the next day they find a turtle shell with the exact same design carved into it Instead of preserving the mysterious artwork the Aldens immediately utilize it as cookware Art shmart Take a bath hippie the Aldens would say They have fish stew to make and they need a kettle I personallyove how they decided to make fish stew Ellie (Ellie, long before anyone found the shell which is just exactly what they need THE PUPPETMASTER STRIKES AGAINThe group goes down to the old fishing hole to catch the ingredients for their new turtle kettle but Lars only has enough fishingines for the boys It s just as well Grandfather points out the girls probably would mess it up anyways It s best to just Dear Office-Politics let them watch from the rocks while all four boys try to catch the same grouper trapped in a tide pool Sporting Eventually someone Henry maybe I drifted off there for a bitands the grouper and we can go back to the huts An extensive description of cleaning and cooking the fish follows Riveting stuff thisNothing mysterious happens during the food preparation Gertie doesn t Thomas Harriott like to get sidetracked when meals are involved which is a position I can get behind However as soon as she s described every detail of stew prep dried onions clues start popping up fast and thick again Next there s a myna bird that says Hello Peter Benny strains his mental faculties and deduces that Peter must have been the person who taught the bird to talk You really can t get anything by this kid He s probably been drinking aot of canned milk so he s at the top of his game They spend the next chapter updating us on the stew preparation discussing Peter and planning their next meal Henry thinks it will be pretty exciting if Peter is on the island right now Because that s not creepy They ve only been there for two weeks without seeing anyone Violet is worried that it s a cannibal but Grandfather reasonably points out that cannibals don t speak English Apparently it s a mutually exclusive thing so they re all safe Old JH can be uite helpful when he s A Mistletoe Kiss lucid I m fairly certain that Violet s special textbook covered cannibals extensively because this is not theast we Intimate Strangers ll hear about them Clearly no one screened the book for content that wouldn t upset her delicate constitution Heads will roll Grandfather does notike it when Violet is upsetSpeaking of rolling heads Mike preempts Benny and renames Blue Bay Shark Bay Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book lest they forget about the dangerurking beneath the ovely blue water I expected a knock down drag out fistfight over this coup but Benny doesn t say anything He made a huge to do about not knowing that Mike could swim but he s fine with him taking over giving things stupid and obvious names That s Benny s trademark I think Benny s been hitting the sauce s trademark I think Benny s been hitting the sauce Grandfather isn t ooking Nothing else could explain how chill he is about the situation Jessie is always worried that Benny is going to pitch a fit when something doesn t suit him so I suspect that he throws tantrums on a regular basisSeveral chapters of island fun follow Then one day Henry declares that he doesn t want to nap and in true codependent Stepford fashion the other kids jump right on that bandwagon You know they don t Chaplin like to be separated for anyength of time Even Mike has relinuished his independence and sense of individuality by now Since there are a Fair Game lot of mysterious things going on they decide to head inland into the untamed wilderness Grandfather and Lars both know that this is foolish since there is clearly someoneoose on the island but they don t want to send Violet into hysterics because she s afraid of cannibals again so they wave goodbye and send the children merrily on their way without even a machete to clear away brush Actually that s probably wise I can totally see Violet sobbing her eyes out over the mutilation of those poor helpless plants and their displacement from their home on the jungle path Anyway Grandfather
Is Having His Naphaving his nap hell or high water so he sends Lars after the kids to keep an eye water so he sends Lars after the kids to keep an eye them This seems surprisingly protective until you realize that Lars is in the middle of mending one of the huts and he s probably making a The Creatures lot of noise and keeping Grandfather from getting his beauty sleepMeanwhile the kids are traipsing through the wil.
