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.

Great mystery Jan 15, 2004
The Pizza Mystery is one of my favorite Boxcar Children books. The Aldens come to help their old friends, Mrs. and Mr. Piccolo, at their pizza parlor. The kids come up with all sorts of creative ideas, like mini pizzas and a delivery service. But lots of strange things are going on. Someone makes coupons for kids to get free sodas. The power goes out. Is someone trying to ruin the Piccolo's buisness? The Boxcar Children are determined to find out!
The Pizza Mystery Dec 21, 2002
I love pizza. But anyways on to the review. When someone tries to close down Piccolo's Pizzeria, the Boxcar Children come to the aid of their old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Piccolo, and come up for ideas for mini pizzas, a delivery service, and special coupons. Simultaneous. The boxcar children wonder is someon is deliberately trying to shut down the pizza paler. Are they right?
I agree one of the best! Jul 19, 2001
I agree that this is the best Boxcar Children book. And once again the Alden Children find themselves on another mystery. And this one is not the same from others. As the book begins, the Aldens and Grandfather Alden find out that thier favorite pizza place is in trouble (that nobody can figure out why).
The Aldens has decide to end thier trip that they have been on. But taking a trip to the pizza place. On the way they meet the manger of the nextdoor factory called The Mighty Mufflers. His name is Maxwell Irons. Right before they had off to Piccolo's Pizza (the name of thier favorite pizza place).
But when they arrive they seem to can't find the pizza place because a billboard is in front of the sign and the pizza place. They can't find a place to park, but they do, but they can't park there because it's for truck only. It is the loading parking space.
The Piccolos has had trouble with thier oven. The gasline has been messed up. They had two waiters leave. And sometimes the Piccolos sometimes do not open up at all. The Alden Children decide to stay back and help out the Piccolos. Mr. And Mrs. Piccolos agree to this.
And soon the Aldens and the Piccolos has more trouble. Somebody has caused a blackout and printed up coupons for kids 12 and under to have them buy a slice of pizza and get free pop. But can the Aldends save the pizza place?
The best Boxcar Children Book! Aug 10, 1999
This is one I remember from my childhood, and I have to protest I beleive it is the best Boxcar Childrens book made! The plop is VERY grabbing and interesting - and of course the thought of pizza makes you HUNGRY sometimes. The book is so well written, and will keep your attention so much that you can even smell the ingredients that the Piccolo family (the owners of the Pizzeria) are using.
