This book is a Boxcar Children book. The book tells about what happens to Mike, the boxcar children’s friend. Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny find out why Mike’s house burned down and who the man in the blue hat is. The man in the blue hat is one of the men who tried to buy Aunt Jane’s ranch. I liked this book. It is a wonderful book and I hope to read more boxcar children books.
