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 behind their friend (a kids review) Nov 6, 2005
I think this book is about four children who go on a mystery while on vacation in Florida. But when they get there they have to solve a mystery behind their friend Millson. And the mystery about who should be blamed for the motel. My favorite part was when they learned who did the terrible things. I think kids 7 and up should read this book.

If you read this to your kids, it'll put them to sleep. Dec 30, 1999
I strongly advise you not to let your kids read this book. The boringness could disturb them. It could cause permanent damage! In other words, don't read this book. --Andy, 11 years old
