More About Gertrude Chandler Warner & Dirk Gringhuis
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 Mike's Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #5)?
Go Mike Sep 28, 2002
This, along with The Woodshed Mystery, was my favourite book (not just Boxcar Children, but books in general) for some time. It brings back to life the definite promise of adventure from the third book that slumbered through the fourth, and is one of the most well-laid-out and realistic of the series. At least I've always thought so. :)
We met Mike in "Surprise Island", and here he is back again in the little town that has sprung up around the Aldens' uranium mines. But when his house burns down suspiciously, a mystery follows. I think much of the reason I liked this so much was because the two youngest children, Benny and Mike, were really the main ones solving the mystery, with a bit of help here and there from the elder ones.
Definitely give your children this book. I know they will love it.
This Book Was Great! Jul 12, 2001
This book was a great book. When Mike's house burns down the Alden children hear a rumor that Mike burned his own house down! But the Alden children know he didn't do it. The only reason why I didn't like it is because they only mentioned Snowball once, and I LOVE HORSES and all other animals.
This book was a very interesting book. Jan 27, 2000
One warm night four children stood in front of a bakery. No one knew them. No one where they had come from. Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny used to live alone in a boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather and are spending the summer out west on Mystery Ranch. The excitement begins when they meet their old friend, Mike. When Mike is blamed for starting a fire, the Boxcar Children know he's innocent. But can they discover who's really behind Mike's Mystery-before it's too late? I really enjoyed this book there is a lot of mystery in this book. I think that this book is definitely worth reading. "The four Alden children could hardly wait to get back to Mystery Ranch." That's probably the only thing about the book that I don't like. Which is those fake names of ranches or towns or something like that.
This is the greatest book I've ever read. Dec 16, 1998
This book is about four children named Henry,Jessie,Violet,and Benny that help their friend named Mike find out who set his house on fire.They think a man in a blue hat did it but they're not sure.See if you can follow the clues to find out who did it.
