More About Gertrude Chandler Warner
Gertrude Chandler Warner was born on April 16, 1890, in Putnam, Connecticut. She came from a musical family and played the cello. Because of illness, she was unable to finish high school, and learned from a tutor. In 1918, because all of the male teachers were away fighting in World War I, she was asked to teach first grade. The majority of children in her class did not speak English well, and she made up "The Box-Car Children" in 1924. The book remained a single title, until it was republished in 1942, becoming very popular. Another book followed in 1949, then a total of 19 by the same author. A total of 154 books have been written as of 2013, although by different authors. Later in life, Warner became a volunteer for the Red Cross. She died on August 30, 1979, at the age of 89, and is buried in Grove Street Cemetery in Putnam.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Dinosaur Mystery (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #44)?
Great!! Aug 16, 2004
I first began reading the Boxcar Children Mysteries when I was 7. I thought of them as the best books ever. This one was no disappointment. The story is just perfect. I have no problems with it at all. I recommend that you read it, no matter who you are. It is mostly for ages 7-12, but also adults and seniors will enjoy it. Terrific!!!!
Dinosaur Mystery Rocks!!! Aug 13, 2004
This is one of my favorite Boxcar Children Mysteries!!! The plot is good and strong. The story is exciting. It is one of the first ones that Soo Lee, Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny's adopted cousin from Korea is involved. It is a great chapter book for beginning readers that are just beginning to read longer books, although I do recommend it to anyone. Just a great mystery!!!
Ms. Warner! We accuse you of writing simple junk! May 7, 1999
The characters are less than one dimensional. The plot is under-under-under-developed. Please, stop writing.
