When Benny hears that someone his age has moved in down the road, he's thrilled! Benny hops on his bike and rides over, excited to meet the boy. Then Benny reads the name on the boy's shirt. BETH. The new kid is not a boy. She's a girl!
Benny Alden just may be the most popular kid in America! As the youngest of the Boxcar Children, he's always ready with a funny comment, a question about the next meal, or a solution to a mystery. Like all the characters in the Boxcar Children® Mysteries, he's very independent, and he knows it's important to be kind and honest and work hard. So what better way to introduce younger readers to the magic of the Boxcar Children than through Benny, along with the Alden family's faithful dog, Watch?
