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.

After the surprise they went over for the skating party and that’s when the mystery begins. There was a thief that had stolen a diamond rind that was very special to someone .the kids were on the case and they saw someone in a green costume and he or she was up to something .At the end they solved the mystery on ice and they had a new cousin to their family she was adopted and is eight years old her name is Soo Lee she was from Asia.
