The Aldens are visiting the New Jersey shore and enjoying the beach and the boardwalk attractions. A family friend has just bought an amusement pier, and the children are excited to help out. But there are rumors that the rides aren’t safe, and someone has stolen a zombie from the haunted house! Can the Boxcar Children find out what’s behind all the trouble?
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of The Boxcar Children®, Albert Whitman & Company and Hammerhead Productions are sponsoring a nationwide contest to select a child between the ages of 5 and 14 to win a part in the animated movie Surprise Island, which is set to launch in fall 2017.
