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 the Ice (Boxcar Children Winter Special #1)?
A great mystery Feb 25, 2001
This is a great mystery. The diamonds are in the place you least expect. Two people get engaged in this book too. One of the characters is really funny. This is a good book if you like mysteries.
What is this book anyway???? Jun 23, 1998
The biggest thing that bothered me about this book was that why a person would sew stolen jewels on a skating costume that was in plain sight of everyone. Children like the Aldens aren't smarter than grown-up dectectives. This book was really AWFUL!!
