More About Gertrude Chandler Warner

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.

Best of the Boxcars  Feb 15, 2000
This book was one of the best Boxcar children books that there is. It was well written and really suprised me with the way that it turned out. If you are looking for a good kids mytery book, this is the one to choose.
Boxcar Children--blaarghh  Dec 22, 1997
What an insult to the world of children's literature!! It already tells you something that on most of the Boxcar Children books, it doesn't even tell you the author, merely saying "Series created by Gertrude Chandler Warren." The characters are flat and inane, the plot is one-dimensional and predictable but still completely outlandish (I mean, finding out who put purple ink in the pool? come on!). I could go on and on about these ROTTEN books, but now all I'm going to say is...someday you'll be sorry if you give your children these books to read instead of the beautiful, humoristic, thought-provoking and stimulating books that intelligent and thoughtful people have written for children.
