About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car―just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books―a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today the Boxcar Children series has more than one hundred books.

Read the original as written in 1924 as "Box-Car" with a hyphen.
Read this watered down 1942 reissue.
Be appalled. Flat. Elements of survival and danger removed. Names of cities changed for no reason. Sad. By watering down the story the actions of the children seem less daring, less significant, less accomplished.

The pages are so thin that they leave imprints and is sometimes very hard to read if the next page has a picture. Wish the pages they used were not so thin.
