About the author

Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today The Boxcar Children® series has more than one hundred books.

    In the 80s and early 90s when the Boxcar Children mysteries had a resurgence, it seemed like hundreds of them were published-- but not all of them were up to the standards of the originals. When I looked at the publication information, I was surprised to find that this was *not* one of the Boxcar Children books that Gertrude Chandler Warren wrote herself. The ghost writer had the perfect touch, with the same easy-reader writing, the same sparky characters, and the same independence. Nowadays I can't imagine any children being able to have the kind of adventures the Boxcar children did-- they are allowed too long a leash. But the attention to detail (like what foods are packed for picnics and snacks) are still there, along with the obligatory red-herring stranger, the mysteries that seem more ominous than they really turn out to be, and the suspicious parties who turn out to be working for the greater good.
