    About the Author

    Gertrude Chandler Warner

    Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut, on April 16, 1890, to Edgar and Jane Warner Her family included a sister, Frances, and a brother, John From the age of five, she dreamed of becoming an author She wrote stories for her Grandfather Carpenter, and each Christmas she gave him one of these stories as a gift Today, Ms Warner is best remembered as the author of THE BOXCAR CHILDREN MYSTERIES As a child, Gertrude enjoyed many of the things that girls enjoy today She loved furnishing a dollhouse with handmade furniture and she liked to read Her favorite book was ALICE IN WONDERLAND Often on Sundays after church, Gertrude enjoyed trips to visit her grandparents farm Along the way, she and Frances would stop to pick the wildflowers they both loved Gertrude s favorite flower was the violet.Her family was a very musical one They were able to have a family orchestra, and Gertrude enjoyed playing the cello Her father had brought her one from New York a cello, a bow, a case and an instruction book All together, he paid 14 Later, as an adult, she began playing the pipe organ and sometimes substituted for the church organist Due to ill health, Ms Warner never finished high school She left in the middle of her second year and studied with a tutor Then, in 1918, when teachers were called to serve in World War I, the school board asked her to teach first grade She had forty children in the morning and forty in the afternoon Ms Warner wrote, I was asked or begged to take this job because I taught Sunday School But believe me, day school is nothing like Sunday School, and I sure learned by doing I taught in that same room for 32 years, retiring at 60 to have time to write Eventually, Ms Warner attended Yale, where she took several teacher training courses Once when she was sick and had to stay home from teaching, she thought up the story about the Boxcar Children It was inspired by her childhood dreams As a child, she had spent hours watching the trains go by near her family s home Sometimes she could look through the window of a caboose and see a small stove, a little table, cracked cups with no saucers, and a tin coffee pot boiling away on the stove The sight had fascinated her and made her dream about how much fun it would be to live and keep house in a boxcar or caboose She read the story to her classes and rewrote it many times so the words were easy to understand Some of her pupils spoke other languages at home and were just learning English THE BOXCAR CHILDREN gave them a fun story that was easy to read Ms Warner once wrote for her fans, Perhaps you know that the original BOXCAR CHILDREN raised a storm of protest from librarians who thought the children were having too good a time without any parental control That is exactly why children like it Most of my own childhood exploits, such as living in a freight car, received very little cooperation from my parents Though the story of THE BOXCAR CHILDREN went through some changes after it was first written, the version that we are familiar with today was originally published in 1942 by Scott Foresman Today, Albert Whitman Company publishes this first classic story as well as the next eighteen Alden children adventures that were written by Ms Warner.Gertrude Chandler Warner died in 1979 at the age of 89 after a full life as a teacher, author, and volunteer for the American Red Cross and other charitable organizations After her death, Albert Whitman Company continued to receive mail from children across the country asking for adventures about Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny Alden In 1991, Albert Whitman added to THE BOXCAR CHILDREN MYSTERIES so that today s children can enjoy many adventures about this independent and caring group of children.

      The Boxcar Children is a very good series for kids to read. The Haunted Cabin Mystery book was about the Aldens going to visit old Cap Lambert, their grandfather's friend. The Aldens (children) noticed that something was off at the Cap Lambert's cabin. They decided to go deeper and unravel the mysteries that were hidden in the cabin. This is a great mystery series to have in the classroom library that kids from 2rd graders can read on their own.

      this book was a fun but there were things that I just couldn't buy. for example, I dint believe that a bunch of children were well versed enough with wiring that they could create a switch to turn on all the lights in the barn from one place if it hadn't already been set up. I did like that they had to create a deliberate plan, but other stuff was just not believable.

      This is the first book in the series written by someone other than the original author so I wasn't expecting it to be as good. I could definitely tell the difference but it turned out to be fairly good. Children likely wouldn't notice much of a difference even though I did. I would much prefer Gertrude Chandler Warner but they did their best to try to imitate her tone.

      They were going to go to a island. But the caption got hurt. Everyone thought the house was haunted. But they found out it was just friends. I like that Benny was the first to find that it was a boy and girl. The caption found out it was his friends.

      This is the first of the "new" boxcar children books, i.e. not written by the original author. Good enough for a kid, but not worth it for me to seek them all out. I do love the original 19 books, however.

      I am currently reading this as a read aloud to my students! They love it, they constantly ask when we can read another chapter. They love the mystery and using the clues in the story to find out what is happening at the cabin!

      This was a very good story. There were some interesting moments where I thought about not reading anymore.

      One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

      A quick and easy little read! We enjoyed reading this over lunch the past week. A nice story (a little scary for my four and almost-three-year-old at times) but enjoyable!
