More About Gertrude Chandler Warner


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Gertrude Chandler Warner was born on April 16, 1890, in Putnam, Connecticut. She came from a musical family and played the cello. Because of illness, she was unable to finish high school, and learned from a tutor. In 1918, because all of the male teachers were away fighting in World War I, she was asked to teach first grade. The majority of children in her class did not speak English well, and she made up "The Box-Car Children" in 1924. The book remained a single title, until it was republished in 1942, becoming very popular. Another book followed in 1949, then a total of 19 by the same author. A total of 154 books have been written as of 2013, although by different authors. Later in life, Warner became a volunteer for the Red Cross. She died on August 30, 1979, at the age of 89, and is buried in Grove Street Cemetery in Putnam.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Amusement Park Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #25)?

The Amusement Part Mystery (Boxcar Children Mysteries)  Jul 7, 2006
I was very disappointed with this book. It was not written by the original author (Gertrude Chandler Warner) of the series (the last book she wrote was #19). Whoever wrote this book obviously never read any of her books beyond the first one.

In the last book she wrote (#19), the children were almost grown (Henry, the oldest, was in college), but in this book they are 6, 10, 12 and 14 years old again. To make things more annoying, the author of this book references adventures/mysteries that the children encounter when they were older in the books Ms. Warner wrote. The author of these books also has the annoying habit of rehashing to Boxcar Children's origins in each book. Ms. Warner would mention this in passing during her books, but the author of this book (and all those not written by Ms. Warner) seems to feel they need to recap this story at the beginning of every book (using several pages to do it!) I have only read the new books 20-25, but all seem to take place in August and they want you to believe that they haven't had any other adventure that summer.

The last thing that disappointed me with this book and all those not written by Ms. Warner is that girls are not brave at all and the adventures/mysteries seem much scarier (and are I think) as a result.

I do not recommend this book for anyone who has read and enjoyed the original Boxcar Children books written by Gertrude Chandler Warner.
 
The Best Book  Jul 20, 1998
I forget pretty much of this book but I remebered it was the first Boxcar Children book I read and it brought me into liking the Boxcar Children.
