One warm night four children stood in front of a bakery. No one knew them. No one knew where they had come from. Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny are a family. They're brothers and sisters-and they're orphans, too. The only way they can stay together is to try and make it on their own. But where will they live? One night, during a storm, the children find an old red boxcar that keeps them warm and safe. The children decide to make it their home-and become The Boxcar Children!
