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 Mystery at the Alamo (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #58)?
Mystery at the Alamo Nov 29, 2007
My 10 year old son loved this book. We picked this book because we were taking a trip to see the Alamo, and he had a book report due at the same time. While the book was a fictional mystery, it had many accurate facts about the Alamo. My son had a great time comparing all the things in the actual museum to the things that he read about in the book.
An Exciting Story Jul 19, 2005
According to my 10 year old son, this story was very interesting and he had a hard time putting it down at night. He recommends it highly saying it is very good. It gives some good info about the Alamo. He said it was neat because he has been to the Alamo.
