About the Author
GERTRUDE CHANDLER WARNER (1890-1979) was an American author of children's books, most notably the nineteen original titles in the Boxcar Children Mysteries series. Warner was raised in Putnam, Connecticut, across the street from a railroad station, which later inspired her to write about children living in a boxcar. In 1918, she began what would become a thirty-two year career teaching first and third grade at the Israel Putnam School. She died in Putnam on August 30, 1979, when she was eighty-nine years old. But the Boxcar Children live on: to this day, talented authors contribute new stories to the series, which now totals over 120 books.
About the Book Series
Books One through Twelve of the celebrated Boxcar Children Mysteries, now available as an ebook box set.
Since its debut more than half a century ago, the Boxcar Children Mysteries has been one of the most beloved and popular children's collections of all time. Collected here are the first twelve classic stories, following the story of four orphaned Alden children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. They create a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar in the forest. They eventually meet their grandfather, who is a wealthy and kind man (although the children had believed him to be cruel). The children decide to live with the grandfather, who moves the beloved boxcar to his backyard so the children can use it as a playhouse all the way through to their exciting journey on a houseboat. This enriched ebook box set includes an illustrated biography of author Gertrude Chandler Warner, with photos from the archives at the Warner Museum in Putnam, Connecticut.
