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.

Kevin THE LIGHTHOUSE MYSTERY BY: GERTRUDE CHANDLER WARNER MYSTERY GRADE LEVEL - GRADE 4 This is a great page turning mystery! The main characters are the members of the Alden family. There is Grandfather Alden who takes care of all his grandchildren. There is Henry who is about eighteen years old and is the oldest of the grandchildren. There is also Benny who is about nine and the youngest of the Alden¿s. There is also Violet and Jessie who are both about twelve years old. This family has many strange encounters with odd characters. The Alden family was on their way home from their Aunt Jane¿s house when they saw a lighthouse for sale in the city of Conley. This lighthouse is the main setting for the story. Grandfather and the children wanted to buy it. They stopped at a nearby grocery store to ask about the sale at which time they passed a strange man. This man they come across several times in the story. Come to find out, the owner of the grocery store had already bought the lighthouse but he said he would rent it to them for the summer. One night while staying there, Watch, their dog, woke them up in the middle of the night. The Aldens saw a dark shadow walking away from the building next to the lighthouse. This happened at the same time every night for about a week. The Aldens investigated the building to find clues of who the person was and what he or she was doing. They looked inside and saw cooking materials, sacks of seaweed, and a table with little cakes on it but no one was there. One day they went to a nearby clothing store to get swimsuits and asked the lady at the store about the strange man they had seen several times. She told them that he was a rich fisherman but you would never know it. He also had a son that wanted to go to college but he wouldn¿t let him. This is a great book for you if you are looking for a good mystery book. I enjoyed this book and I am sure you will too.
