More About Gertrude Chandler Warner
The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979."
Gertrude Chandler Warner lived in Putnam, in the state of Connecticut. Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 and died in 1979.

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.
