I have a page on my website at, Tiny Town Books and Toys, of which explains some of the differences between the 1924, 1942, and 1950 editions of The Boxcar Children books. The 1924 edition by Rand McNally and Company has far more details and is even more interesting to read than the 1942 and 1950 editions published by Scott Foresman and Company. The 1924 edition is definitely my personal favorite of this classic and well-loved story! The details they give in that version makes everything so vivid to the mind. I had others read the different versions as well, and the 1924 edition was voted 1st choice, each time! It is the "Holy Grail" of all The Boxcar Children books! No book collection is complete without the 1924 edition of The Boxcar Children!
