About the Author

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. 
Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.

  •     Great Series!! I purchased Books 1-4, for an 8-year old...she absolutely loves them. She enjoys reading regardless; however, since she is required to read 30-minutes every night for school, the chapter books come in very handy. More often than not, she reads beyond her 30-minutes, because she wants to finish a certain chapter, and on a few occasions, she has completed the entire book before going to bed. The stories are great, fun, interesting, the illustrations are okay. She looks forward to following the main characters throughout the different series. Highly recommend the books, and will definitely be purchasing additional series.Mystery Ranch (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #4)

  •     I ordered The Boxcar Children books as a gift for my 7 year old grandson. He loves to read and I wanted to find books that would catch and keep his attention.


  •     We haven't found a Box Car Children's book we didn't like. Every one if filled with kindness and goodness.

  •     Excellent

  •     It was a heart warming book and I think everyone should read this book.

  •     I purchased the Kindle version of this because our local library did not have a hard copy to borrow. My children and I have been disappointed to discover the Kindle version has missing content. Every few chapters, there is an obvious "jump" where material is missing. Reading this book has turned into an exercise in deductive reasoning for us trying to figure out what happened in the missing sections. If at all possible, buy (or borrow)a hard copy of this instead of purchasing the Kindle version.

  •     She enjoys the book

  •     The children love it.

  •     The plot in this title may not shine as bright as the others but it does still have a good "takeaway", RESPECT. Pure and simple.

  •     There wasn't any mystery. The reason I read the boxcar children series is they have a mystery. This one didn't

  •     My son loves this.

  •     My great-grandson loves it; in fact, he has loved each of the first three books in the series and looks forward to reading the subsequent books as well.

  •     This is the last book i needed to read in the box car series i had skipped it but now i have read all the 158 box car children books this story is a good mystery and you are always at the edge of your seat. This book is great! This book is good for ages 7-13

  •     Definitely a darling series. It is nice to read something that captures the innocence of children and a family that loves them very much. It keeps you wanting to read more without all the violence that is so prolific in everything in today's books, TV and movies. I am reading them with my eight-year-old daughter.

  •     My 3rd grader absolutely LOVES the Boxcar Children mysteries. We have read 7 of them so far and will probably download more soon (he's begging for them).

  •     I loved these books as a child and now my children love them (especially my daughter). The Boxcar Children books are great for helping children learn to love reading.

  •     I thought I was buying the paperback book, not the ebook.
