Meet the Author


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.

    Benny Uncovers a Mystery (The Boxcar Children Series #19)

    A boy named Benny who is 11 years old is looking for a summer job. He finally found a job at a department store. He is the stock and delivery boy, there. After a week or so, some mysterious things start happening. His older brother and himself have to solve the mystery at the store. The reason I liked this book is because it stayed interesting and exciting. It stayed on topic and there was never a dull moment. There was nothing in this book that I didn¿t like. Benny is my favorite character because he is the youngest and funniest Alden. He is also the main character in the book and he is the one that solves the mystery. The most creative part of the story is when the author describes the setting of the old woman¿s house when Benny delivers some of the store items to her house. She is always shopping at that store. The setting shows that she¿s laid back, has a nice little cozy home, and she is comfortable in her surroundings. This book is unique and different than all the other books I¿ve read. This book has children taking matters into their own hands. They are responsible and courageous. The best thing is that the youngest child solves the mystery. I would recommend this book to a friend because most of them like mystery stories, and this is an excellent one. Plus also, it is well written. It¿s not to hard or to easy.
