About The Boxcar Children

The initial book informs the story of 4 children: Henry James Alden, 14; Jessie Alden, 12; Violet Alden, 10; Benny Alden, 6; and their dog Watch. Upon the death of their parents, their grandfather assumes custody of the kids, but they run away because they believe him to be cruel. Finding an abandoned boxcar, they begin a hot existence of independence. They furnish their boxcar with goods retrieved from a regional dump while Henry functions for a young doctor, in purchase to earn income for food. The young doctor, Dr. Moore, who lives in a nearby city, hires Henry to do jobs around his house, like mowing the lawn and organizing his garage. He moreover does gardening for Mrs. Moore. (In 1 case, Mrs. Moore let him take house some parsnips and carrots he had picked because they were too small) The children's lives are pleasant and easy until Violet becomes ill plus they should go to Dr. Moore for assistance.

Earlier in the novel, Dr. Moore has read in the newspaper a guy called James Alden was providing a ,000 reward for anybody who will find his 4 lost grandchildren. When Violet is taken ill, Dr. Moore finally contacts James Alden, who arrives only after the kids bring in Violet for treatment. Not wanting to frighten the youngsters into running away again, their grandfather referred to himself as Mr. Henry (Henry being his center name). Not understanding that the guy was their "cruel" grandfather, the kids warm to his kindness and are amazed but pleased when Dr. Moore reveals to them that he is their grandfather. After moving in with their grandfather, Mr. Alden moves the boxcar to his yard for their enjoyment.

About Gertrude Chandler Warner

(From Wikipedia) Gertrude Chandler Warner (April 16, 1890 - August 30, 1979) was an American writer, primarily of children's stories. She was many distinguished for beginning the popular Boxcar Children book series.

Born in Putnam, Connecticut, Warner dreamed of being a well-known writer within the age of five. Her favorite book was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Being in a musical family, she was virtually predisposed to play an instrument; in her case, she chose the cello, and her dad purchased her a cello kit at a young age. But, as a result of her frequent disease, Warner not completed excellent school. After exiting in her sophomore year, she learned from a tutor and completed her secondary knowledge. In 1918, while she was training Sunday School, Warner was called to teach initial level, because guy teachers were being called to serve in World War I. She thought up the Boxcar Children while at house, sick. The stories were ideal for youngsters, incredibly most (at least in her class) who didn't speak English well. She was criticized for showing kids with small parental supervision; her critics thought that this would motivate child rebellion. Her reaction was, still, that the kids liked it for that truly reason.

The series was initially published by Scott Foresman, beginning in 1942. Today, Albert Whitman & Company publishes the very common series of 19 stories. Other authors have provided to the series, adding around 90 books to the series. In her later lifetime, before she died at age 89, Warner became a volunteer for the American Red Cross and assisted additional charitable companies.
