Who Wrote The Boxcar Children

author
Gertrude Chandler Warner

GERTRUDE CHANDLER WARNER was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she later taught school. She 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.
