Author Notes

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 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.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-- The Alden children return , and are now visiting their cousins who live near an amusement park. Once settled in, they all take off for the park , and learn that the merry-go-round horses are very old and valuable. After receiving threatening phone calls warning them to stay away from the park, the children investigate and are lead into a dangerous situation. This is yet another addition to the numerous mysteries by the late author; it will entertain her many fans, and will undoubtedly create new ones.-- Elizabeth Hamilton, Miami-Dade Public Library, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
