Annotation: It's a delicious new mystery with the Boxcar Children as they help catch a cupcake thief! Mama Tova's shop in Greenfield is so famous that every day, people line up around the block to buy her cupcakes. But when someone breaks into her kitchen, it's clear that her secret recipe is in danger. The Aldens follow the suspects to a bake-off where they must find the culprit using their mystery-solving skills—and their taste buds, too!

Contributor Bio(s): Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall)
Created by Gertrude Chandler Warner. The Alden children stumble upon one mystery while learning to recycle (Bin) and encounter another at a local award-winning cupcake shop (Caper). These contemporary additions to the long-running series rely more on familiarity than solid writing; the children have few defining characteristics, the plots are farfetched, and the setting is indeterminate.
