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 Mystery of the Hot Air Balloon (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #47)?
Very accurate. Jan 9, 1999
My children have always enjoyed the Box Car Children series of books. As a hot air balloon pilot, we could not ignore a Box Car Children book with a balloon theme. I found the accuracy of the text to be very true and also a good source for children to learn about the sport of ballooning. I did some researce about the author and found that she died years before sport ballooning became popular. The "mystery" to me is "who wrote this book"? It must have been a balloon pilot or a balloon crew person. To find out what a balloon crew person does...read the book.
