Unshelved comic strip for 8/29/2012

The Boxcar Children

Boxcar Children

This year marks the 70th anniversary of one of my childhood favorites, the Boxcar Children, which has being relaunched with an updated new look by this week's sponsor, Albert Whitman & Co. They also commissioned a new prequel by Patricia MacLachlan, celebrated author of Sarah, Plain and Tall, winner of the Newbery Medal. Find out who the Alden family were before they were the Boxcar children, read sample chapters, and see if your town is on Patricia's Fall speaking tour!
