More About Gertrude Chandler Warner
The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979."
Gertrude Chandler Warner lived in Putnam, in the state of Connecticut. Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 and died in 1979.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Windy City Mystery (Boxcar Children Mystery & Activities Specials #10) (Boxcar Children Special)?
The Absent Plot Mystery Sep 12, 2000
This book was a terrible disappointment. It was my son's first "Chapter Book" and almost put him off reading forever. There is no plot, the premise is absurd and one cannot tell one character from another as they are so poorly developed. It was required summer reading for his school and I thought we'd never get through it.
I had heard this was a wonderful series; perhaps we just chose the worst of the lot.
No trouble, just a surprise at the end Jul 3, 2000
It is a mystery in the sense that the children do not know wholeaves them messages,but that's about it all.Nothing is happening thatmakes the story really keep the reader in suspense.
