More About Gertrude Chandler Warner
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.

We really liked this book alot! Jul 3, 1998
This mystery kept us guessing. We were worried about the Alden's new friend Miguel.
It was one of the best books I've ever read. Apr 4, 1998
I liked this book because I enjoyed the part when they found a sword from a war. Somebody kept messing up the books the children organized. The kids worked for hours and hours cleaning up. The book made me want to keep reading!
