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.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Haunted Cabin Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #20)?
A real shame Jun 15, 2004
This is the first of the shameful series of Boxcar Children books that were written long after the author's death. The first 19 are wonderfully written classics of children's literature. The rest, for the most part, are pointless fluff, not engaging for parents or most children. If you are reading them all to your children, and in order, they will also become very confused here: Throughout Warner's original series, the characters aged and matured quite a bit. Starting with this book, they are inexplicably returned to and perpetually stuck at their original ages.
The Haunted Cabin Mystery Jan 1, 2000
The children went to visit their grandpa's friend. He lived in a Haunted cabin! I thought it was a little scary. It was still good.
