Just so, what year is the Boxcar Children set in?

Originally published in 1924 by Rand McNally (as The Box-Car Children) and reissued in a shorter revised form in 1942 by Albert Whitman & Company, The Boxcar Children tells the story of four orphaned children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. They create a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar in the forest.

Subsequently, question is, how old is Jessie in the Boxcar Children? 12

Similarly, you may ask, should you read Boxcar Children in order?

There's no real continuity - the children change ages randomly (like in one book the oldest will be 13, in the next the oldest will be 11) and previous events are rarely alluded to. You can therefore read them in any order you please. * Which isn't to say they don't have value!

About the Author When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books?a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today the Boxcar Children series has more than one hundred books.
