More About Gertrude Chandler Warner

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.

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.
