First of all, I thought this story was good. The story was funny too. When Benny cut the dogís hair it made me laugh. This book is unique because the pictures in this book are like shadows. They are only black and white. I liked the pictures because they reminded me about what it looks like in the nighttime. The story reminded me of the movie Little Marines except in the movie it is three boys that live in a teepee.
I think other kids should read this book. If you like surprises, there is a surprise at the end. Kids in 3rd-5th graders should read this book. The thing that might interest the reader the most is the stories that Mr. Alden tells to the four orphans. Plus, the kids find an old boxcar and live in it! Could you do that? Read this book to find out what happens.
