The Boxcar Children have entered the Ruby Hollow Gem Mine’s annual gem-hunting competition. With a little instruction and the right gear, the Aldens have everything they need to become real rock hounds! They have a natural talent for rock-finding, and it’s not long before Jessie makes a fabulous find. But before she can enter her ruby in the competition, it disappears!
Could there be a thief at the mine? Now, instead of digging for rocks, the Aldens are digging for clues. Who wants to win the contest so much that they would steal from the Aldens? The children don’t know, but they’re determined to find out!
Would you listen to The Mystery of the Star Ruby again? Why?
My 9 year old daughter enjoyed listening to this mystery. She loves the Boxcar series and would love to listen to it again since the story is well told.
Did Aimee Lilly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, the audio book is easy to follow and understand.
Any additional comments?
We look forward to listening to the rest of the Boxcar books.
