More About Gertrude Chandler Warner, Mary Gehr, Peggy Chern, Patricia MacLachlan, Katherine Paterson, Karuho Shiina & Tim Ohr

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.

The Boxcar Children  Jan 17, 2007
If you love The Boxcar Children books, you will love this one. It follows book no. 2 very well. It will keep you on the edge of your seat as the adventure unfolds. Hard to put down.
 
The Alden children go camping and solve a mystery  Oct 20, 2006
In this third entry in the Boxcar Children series the Alden children (Henry 16, Jessie 14, Violet 12 and Benny 7), ask their grandfather about the mysterious yellow house on their island. He tells them a story about the long missing Bill McGregor, husband of the family housekeeper. The children and their cousin Joe and his new bride Alice decide to locate the missing man when they uncover an overlooked clue to his whereabouts. The six set out to Maine following the clue and along the way have many adventures.

This book was originally written in 1953 by a teacher who combined a basic vocabulary and exciting storyline in order to entice young readers. Her formula was and is a great success. To an adult the mysteries involved are rather simplistic, the situations more than a little unrealistic and the characters quite wooden but to the children the stories are written for these are exciting stories with thrilling adventures around every twist and turn. Just the thing to get a reluctant reader inspired to read for fun.

In the early sixties one of my teachers kept our 5th grade class entralled by reading to us the last few minutes of each day. The Boxcar Children were always a popular choice, the short cliffhanger style chapters kept us anxiously waiting for the next reading and stirred up more than a few schoolyard discussions on what might happen next. It inspired me to go canoe camping in the northwoods years later and share that adventure and The Boxcar Children with my children.
 
yellow house mystery  Mar 3, 2006
in book number three of the boxcar series, the children find themselves yet another mystery. they find a yellow house that they are forbidden to go into because the man who lived there vanished. the boxcar children are on their way to solving the mystery....but when they solve it, can they heal a broken heart?
 
Great Kid's Book!  Dec 4, 2005
I love the Boxcar Children books - these are great adventures for kids. The entire series is worth reading.
 
Great mystery for children  Sep 20, 2002
This was the first real mystery story I ever read, when I was about eight or nine years old, and I madly adored it, except that for some reason the part about the grating brick freaked me out. It has never scared any other child I know who read the book, but for some reason after reading that I couldn't go to sleep for a long time many nights! It really is a well-thought-out mystery - I always thought it was, but after it scared me I didn't dare to read it again for years!

But last week I read it again, and enjoyed it very much again. Of course nothing is as exciting to the adult mind in such a book as it is to a child, but I can still see the appeal in the story and get pleasure from reading it all the same.

Basically the story is... Grandfather's "Surprise Island" has a little yellow house on it. The children sense there is a mystery about it, so they ask Grandfather to tell them about it. He says that a man named Bill lived there with his wife. He disappeared one day, presumably with a large amount of money, and no one was ever able to find where he went. But the Boxcar children are always ready for a challenge and they set off to look for Bill.

Excellent story that all boys and girls should read or have read to them.
