Sobre l'autor

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut on April 16, 1890. Due to her poor health, she never finished high school and studied with a tutor. During World War I, a shortage of teachers prompted the local school board to hire her to teach first grade, a position she held for over 30 mostra'n més years. She wrote the first Boxcar book in 1924, while home recuperating from an illness, but the version most people are familiar with was originally published in 1942. The Alden children became so popular that she wrote 19 adventures about them including Surprise Island, Mystery Ranch, and Snowbound Mystery. She died at age 89 August 29, 1979, but the Boxcar Children are still being written about by a team of writers faithful to her vision. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

The Boxcar Children - comparative notes a Table For One (juliol 2023)

Ressenyes

The Aldens spend the summer on Grandfather's island! Joe, the island's friendly handyman, helps them with anything they need, but as the children continue to explore their summer home, they realize there is more to the island--and to their new friend--than meets the eye.

This was a cute story! I really liked that it took place in their own town. All their traveling is fun, but it was nice to have a hometown mystery.

This was a good story with great morals (keeping nature clean/not polluting), but I did find myself getting a little bored (except for maybe in the middle). Younger readers may loose interest.

I really appreciate the fact that when the Alden’s get too nosy, they realize their fault and try to make it right.

Things to be aware of in “Book Title”

I actually think this one is my favorite in the series so far! I really, really enjoyed it! The storyline involves a scavenger hunt, which is always exciting. It's fun to play along and try to crack the riddles as the story progresses. It was also quite educational (at least the last 2 chapters). It was quite interesting.

Things to be aware of in "Mystery Behind The Wall:"

Additional Notes:
-The children start to make a hole in the wall without first asking permission. They do say, "he won't mind" (meaning their Grandfather), but they do not ask until mid-construction. Later, they decide to expand the hole and, again, do not ask permission. They again state that their Grandfather won't mind. When they expand the hole, the housekeeper (Mrs. McGregor) says to Henry that she hopes they are not doing anything they shouldn't. "No, he isn't," answered Henry. "I've watched the boys. They are just going to make a larger hole between their rooms through the closet wall. It's all right." Did Henry just assume it was alright or did he confirm with Grandfather before the boys enlarge their hole in his wall?… (més)
