The Boxcar Children

Did you know that the Boxcar Children books are actually mysteries? Neither did we! Turns out that the Boxcar Children don’t actually live in a Boxcar for very long at all. That doesn’t stop them from being very excited about things like “being homeless” and “cooking for themselves.”

With a vocabulary aimed at second graders and kids a little too good to be true, the Snark Ladies get through these books one way: booze. So break out the alcohol and join us as we revisit these wholesome children. Something about that last sentence felt so wrong… and so right.
