About the Author

Gertrude Chandler Warner (April 16, 1890 - August 29, 1979) was an American author, mainly of children's stories. She was most famous for beginning the popular Boxcar Children book series.

Born in Putnam, Connecticut, Warner dreamed of being a famous author from the age of five. Her favorite book was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Being in a musical family, she was almost predisposed to play an instrument; in her case, she chose the cello, and her father bought her a cello kit at a young age. However, because of her frequent illness, Warner never finished high school. After leaving in her sophomore year, she learned from a tutor and finished her secondary education. In 1918, while she was teaching Sunday School, Warner was called to teach first grade, mainly because male teachers were being called to serve in World War I. She thought up the Boxcar Children while at home, sick. The stories were perfect for children, especially the majority (at least in her class) who did not speak English very well. She was criticized for displaying children with little parental supervision; her critics thought that this would encourage child rebellion. Her response was, however, that the children liked it for that very reason.

The series was originally published in 1924; the editions most people are familiar with were published by Scott Foresman, starting in 1942. Today, Albert Whitman & Company publishes the extremely popular series of 19 stories. Other authors have contributed to the series, adding approximately 90 books to the series. In her later life, before she died at age 89, Warner became a volunteer for the American Red Cross and assisted other charitable organizations.

Robert Papp is a published author and an illustrator of children's books

Lame Zombie July 25 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Got as a gift for my son, who has read the entire Boxcar Children series. In order. Twice. He said this one is "the lamest", but he didn't say that until he turned the last page. This is one of those that focus on ostensible supernatural explanations rather than the children collecting clues and figuring out what they mean: definitely thin in the clue department. Very little character development, all red herrings.

Format: Paperback
The Boxcar kids are back. This time there are zombies lurking in the woods at the Winding River Lodge. When Madison shows up part of her vacation from the Greenfield Gazette will be spent finding a story for her blog Hauntings. She decides to study up on the local folklore on Zombies. Benny wanted to know all about the zombie legend. While Benny and the gang help Maude clear the old trail to the fishing lodge, Benny thinks he see's a zombie behind the lodge. The story the kids heard sitting by the campfire was chilling. A dead body was found in the forest by the river. It was a hermit. When he is spotted walking abnormally before dawn the legend begins. Benny and the gang make it their mission to solve the mystery of the zombie. Kids will have a great time reading along and searching for clues along with the boxcar gang. This addition to the Boxcar Children series is a quick and easy read for all young readers.
