More About Gertrude Chandler Warner & Daniel Mark Duffy

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 Meet the Boxcar Children (Boxcar Children Early Reader #1) (Adventures of Benny and Watch)?

Meet the box car children  May 18, 2002
The book name was the adventures of "Benny and Watch".
I think this book would be good for other people to read but it was a mystery story and I don't like mystery stories.
The Boxcar Children  May 18, 2002

The name of My book is The adventures of Benny watch
The children's Dad died and they were scared of their Grandpa. This is a sad and happy story.
Wonderful book for young kids, extremly action packed  Apr 14, 2000
In this first book in the series, you meet Benny, Henry, Jessie and Violet, four children whose parents have died and have no where to go. They find an abandoned boxcar and call it home. The end is more surprising than you can imagine.
