The Aldens are helping save an old library that's about to be torn down. If they fix it up, it might be given landmark status! But after all their hard work, it's very clear someone is trying to destroy the library. But who?

The plot has a stranger going into the kids house, and later putting a bag over one of the girls heads to kidnap/assault her. Not a good book for young kids.
Maybe it was okay for its time, but unlike some of the other boxcar mysterious there is a "mean stranger" who stalks, invades, and assults the kids.
The characters were differentiated, but the falsetto for Bennie is very unpleasant to listen to.
I would have cut the assault scene.
Don't get this to entertain your little kids on a road trip
