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.
Meet the Boxcar Childrenby Gertrude Chandler Warner, Daniel Mark Duffy
One dark night, Benny and his brother and sisters walked through the woods. They were orphans, and they were looking for a place to live. Soon the children saw an old red boxcar. “What a funny house,” Benny said. It wasn’t exactly like home, but it was cozy and warm. The children liked living there. Then one day, Benny heard a sound in the bushes. What could it be?
