The Lighthouse Mystery by Gertrude Chandler WarnerThe Lighthouse Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner

The Aldens have just visited their aunt and are on their way back home. They find a lighthouse and decide to rent it. They stay there two weeks. There are some strange goings on, as usual. There’s a little boy who doesn’t go to school, but he wants to. His dad won’t let him go. The Aldens poke their noses in that.

What I liked

Staying in a lighthouse could be cool for a while.

What I didn’t like

Honestly, this book and the ghost ship book ran together. I had to actually look up what this book was about after I read it, because it was unremarkable compared to the previous Boxcar Children book I read. Sure, lighthouses are cool, but what family has the money to just randomly go stay somewhere two weeks?


It’s probably haunted, oh wait, Grandfather doesn’t believe in ghosts.

Weigh In

Would you stay in a lighthouse?

Do you know anyone who can up and decide to randomly go on vacation for two weeks?
