Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.
Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel.
Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Another time they literally just eat peas. Peas are a side dish. Where is the rest of your meal???? One time they have what sounds like the worst apple pie ever for dinner. At one point Violet puts raw eggs and sugar in a bottle of milk and they're all like 'mmm how delicious' Truly I don't know how to handle all this weird food information.
Along with the weird focus on food, the rest of the plot is pretty much just a rehashing of the first book as well. I mean they're living in a barn instead of a boxcar but it's the same basic set up and it literally ends with them discovering another missing relative. I guess she did wait like fifteen years between books so that kind of explains it but still, come on. But really all of this just serves to make it hilarious and if you've read it as a child I would definitely recommend taking another look at it as an adult just to be like 'what in the world' if nothing else.

I decided to read one of the Boxcar Children books after reminiscing about them with a colleague. Turns out, they are pretty strange from an adult perpective. When I was a kid, I thought it would be great to be as self-sufficient as these kids. As an adult, I'm thinking, "What, you let your grandkids live on an island for the summer with nobody but some stranger who lost his memory?! It was fun to take a trip down memory lane with this group of resourceful youngin I decided to read one of the Boxcar Children books after reminiscing about them with a colleague.
