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 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.
