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.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Mystery on Stage (Boxcar Children Mysteries #43)?
The Mystery On School Jan 15, 2004
My opinion of the book is that it's excellent because i did like how they were all friends .I think the book is kind of sad because the two boys and the two girls just live with their grandfather .Now,they have a chance to be in a real play. This story was taking place at a school where the two boys and the two girls go.It took place a wednesday when the principal told them about the real play.The other characters in the book im reading are soo lee,richard,mc gregor,and grandfather .My favorite character is violet.The reason she is my favorite character is because she is very friendly to her friends and because she was chosen to be dorothy for the real play,The Wizard Of Oz. I do not recommend this book to kids under 10.I recommend this book to kids over 11 because they will understand it more.And kids under 10 their going to think that is boring.

This is kind of a scary book Apr 17, 1999
I really have to say none of The Boxcar Children books really scared me, but this one did. I loved this book because I love to act. It's about a girl named Jessie who tries out for a part in The Wizard of Oz at the theater in her town. There's also a girl named Sara who tries out for Dorathy. Sara gets cast as Dorathy and Jessie is the cowardly lion. But, alond the way strange things begin to happen.Can The Aldens solve the mystery before opening night.
