More About Gertrude Chandler Warner & David Cunningham

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 Benny Uncovers a Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #19)?

Benny Uncovers a Mystery  Mar 28, 2006
In general, the Boxcar Children series has one flaw - although I don't think I've ever read the kids' ages mentioned, there are clues to them in things like the fact that they get jobs, and that Henry is going to college in the fall. They all, however, tend to speak like very young children, which I find a little patronizing to the reader.

Benny doesn't like having nothing to do. When he finds himself bored, he seeks out activities and late one summer, the activity he chooses is work. Not mowing lawns, but a real job. He finds jobs for himself and Henry at Furman's, the department store. And at Furman's, he finds a mystery. Who is behind the odd happenings at the store? Jewelry mysteriously appears, employees receive anonymous notes about their job performance and there's a strange woman who shops at the store daily whose shopping habits annoy employees and arouse suspicion. Can Benny work it out before school starts and his summer job is over?

These books are supposed to be for the 8-12 age range, but I think they're more suited to either the die-hard young mystery fan or the younger part of that age group.
The big job ( a kids review )  Nov 7, 2005
I think this book is about four children who want jobs and they find one. The two boys went to their job and found a mystery about somebody stealing jewelry. My favorite part was when they uncovered the mystery. I think kids 7 and up should read this book.
A GOOD book  Mar 14, 2002
This book was very good, but I think it needed more action in it. It got kind of boring, but it was a good book. It needed some more story to it to.
Alex Richardson  Dec 31, 1997
I really liked Benny uncovers a mystery and I think you will too. Just take my advice. Don't expect too much excitement. I recommend this book to kids who like excitement and surprises!
