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 includes over one hundred twenty books.
Benny's Boxcar Sleepoverby Gertrude Chandler Warner, Kay Life
More than anything, Benny wants to have a sleepover in the boxcar in Grandfather’s backyard. When Henry tells Benny to call Michael and Tyler to see if they can spend the night, Benny is thrilled. Thrilled, that is, until people keep mentioning the word “scared.” The boys are pretty sure they’ll be fine—Michael says only bears scare him. Then, before they can get to sleep, Henry and the three boys have to venture through the dark night and back into the house. They hear a loud crash. Will they make it through the night in the boxcar?
