Reviews - What do customers think about Gertrude Chandler Warner and The Boxcar Children?

Very Good  Feb 27, 2007
This book was very interesting. If you are a Gertrude Chandler Warner fan this is for you. It does not, however, inform you of why and how so many people are able to use her name since her death. Clearly none of the books since her death come close in quality to those that she herself wrote.
