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 The Bus Station Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #18)?

The Aldens take a trip  Oct 19, 2006
The Alden children (Henry 16, Jessie 14, Violet 12 and Benny 7) decide to take a trip to a nearby town. While they were waiting to change buses along the way they met the mysterious station manager, Frank and soon found themselves involved in the local problems. A factory was destroying the nearby river and tearing the town apart. Would the Aldens and the town be able to find a way to keep the needed jobs without destroying the river?

This 1974 entry into the long running Boxcar Children series of mysteries was one of the last to be written by the series originator, Gertrude Chandler Warner, who had begun the series in the 1940's with the idea of combining simple vocabulary with high interest plots aimed at beginning readers. Her idea and characters were a great success and have been enjoyed by generations of young readers since. The mysteries involved are slight, the characterizations do not go into depth and the solutions are simplistic to a sophisticated reader but to the target audience of beginning readers they are thrilling. The cliff hanging style of writing keeps them turning page after page to see what is next until they reach the end of these chapter books.
Very Very Bad Book  Jun 20, 1999
I thought this book Was so boring! There wasn't even to solve.If you read this book prepared to be bored.
Not so great. At all.  Jan 7, 1999
These books really have no meaning. There isn't any depth to the characters or plot. I wouldn't recommend these books to anyone.
