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 Disappearing Friend Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #30)?

Shallow, disappointing  Jan 19, 2003
I understand that children love these books and love mysteries. I did too, when I was young. (actually, I like some now too. :-) )

Sadly, I found the characters to be very shallow and too cheerful. When the art supplies were stolen, the children basically said, "Oh darn. Well, let's buy some more." When their work was destroyed they said, "Oh, shucks. Well, we'll do it again." When they started their business to raise money for the hospital (which I though was a great thing to suggest to children), they *instantly* had a full load of clients and the ability to carry out every task perfectly.

The kids are just too perfect to be realistic. Other than that, my 8 yo seems to be very enthusiastic about the series. If they are properly researched, children may learn a few snippets of information with each one they read. If the child puzzles over the mystery, they might serve a little purpose of stimulating creative though.

excellent and could'nt be better  Nov 2, 1998
The dissipearing friend mystery is an exellent book and once you read it you can't put it down. The boxcar children find a new friend but for some reason she keeps dissapearing! Watch out for the very peculiar ending! I'd addvise 6-8 year olds to read this book.
