This week's teaser is from a classic children's book by Gertrude Chandler Warren, The Boxcar Children. I came across this one recently, and couldn't resist picking it up and rereading it. I'll pass it on to one of our neighborhood Little Free Libraries when it warms up enough to walk again (and I'm not still sick). Published in 1942, this book was so popular, it spawned an entire mystery series still read by kids today.
One warm night four children stood in front of a bakery. No one knew them. No one knew where they had come from.
