when I googled it, I got a huge range, so I was wondering if I can get a more specific idea here of what grade level it would be on.

Thanks. Any suggestions for books (mystery or exciting) for a boy on a 4th grade reading level?

I think it’s meant for younger but my son was in 5th grade and still enjoyed it

Boxcar is fine for 4th grade.

Unless they are advanced, like Harry Potter readers.

Woah. There’s something in between.

What about the Hardy boys?

I was reading Harry Potter in second grade (as they came out) and I still loved boxcar children

We read them in second or third grade. Can't remember since I had the same teacher for both years.

I think Boxcar kids and I survived are both around 2nd-3rd grade level.
Maybe Encyclopedia Brown? Haven't read them in a while, so I can't remember that well. My sons loved The Mysterious Benedict Society in 4th grade, but they're BH strong readers.
