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.

The Mystery That Got Uncovered Jan 5, 2002
I like my book The Mystery Of The Queen's Jewels by Gertrude Chandler Warner because it is a mystery. A mystery book is more exciting and you ever know what happens next. Also the endings will always surprise you. In this book they are in London and someone is following them. There are four children in the book who solves the mysterious and at least one person who is sneaky and makes the story instering. The children work together as a team and they never exclude each other. I think it is very interisting how the boxcar children don't fight because usually brothers and sisters fight.This book is very instring because it makes you feel like you're in the book so you will want to read more. This book will encourage young children to like reading. I would encourage young readers to read this series.
Not as exciting as others in the series Jul 3, 2000
What I like about The Boxcar Children series is: 1)the kids arenot some angels,they are normal kids who have conflicts anddisagreements 2)these kids are kind,caring,helpful,and they spend time together (despite their age differences) and stand up for each other - and most important - they enjoy it! 3)the stories are usually interesting,often with unexpected endings 4) the stories are not violent,which is too often the case with books for any age . That said,I didn't like this particular book very much,since the story is not as exciting and the mystery feels like it's happening almost by the way.The ending also felt a little flat and boring.So while I highly recommend most of the other books in the series,I do not recommend this one too much.
