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.

The Alden necklace (a kids review) Nov 6, 2005
I think this book is about 4 kids that go up into their grandfathers attic to look for things to wear on their grandfathers birthday. When they find out that somebody stole Mr. Alden's wife's necklace. My favorite part of the story was when the adventure began. It was very exciting. I think ages 7 and up should read this book.
Excellent! Apr 7, 1999
This book is so neat! It is a great mystery story and is fun to read. Since this book is part of a series, you might expect all the books to be boring, right? Wrong, some are actually really good! I think this is the best of the series that I have read so far! Read this, you won't forget it!
