Storyline

Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny are four orphaned brothers and sisters who mysteriously appear in a small town on a warm summer night. No one knows who these young wanderers are or where they have come from. Frightened to live with a grandfather they have never met, the children make a home for themselves in an old abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Henry, the oldest, goes to town to earn money and buy food and supplies while the other kids make a home in the boxcar finding old dishes and scraps in a junkyard. Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life for themselves. As time passes, they discover the struggles and rewards of independence as well as the joys of family - until one day Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her. They must take Violet to a doctor risking discovery and the loss of their secret home in the forest. Written by Anonymous

Not the best... Read the book?
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Boxcar Children is, while an accurate representation of the book also of the same name, not the best in a few words. The combination of 2D and 3D animation looked awkward, and I honestly have to ask: What's so wrong with the actual book? I mean sure, it's great for younger children who cannot read, but still, can't you just read the actual book?

Honestly, I don't really know how to feel about this movie, But I will say that it definitely could have been MUCH better if they had just given the movie the feel of a book. Now I know, Harry Potter wasn't exactly like the book, but THAT didn't stop it from being good!

So, in conclusion, I would just say go to your local Barnes and Noble, Buy the book, and just read it. It gives you a better experience than this.
