About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, wrote books that were both easy and fun to read. This story, like the other 18 in the now-classic Boxcar Children series, which has sold over 3 million copies in paperback, features children solving problems and acting responsibly without the supervision of adults. Gertrude Chandler Warner was a lifelong resident of Putman, Connecticut, until her death in 1979 at the age of 89.
