About the Author:

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut, on April 16, 1890, to Edgar and Jane Warner. Her family included a sister, Frances, and a brother, John. From the age of five, she dreamed of becoming an author. She wrote stories for her Grandfather Carpenter, and each Christmas she gave him one of these stories as a gift. Today, Ms. Warner is best remembered as the author of The Boxcar Children Mysteries.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-- The Boxcar children have been around since 1942, and young readers still love them. The recipes in this attractive book are related to incidents in the series: "Henry cut one of the loaves of bread into four pieces with his knife, and the children began to eat" introduces a recipe for Baker's Bread in a Bag. Safety rules stressing adult supervision and other general guidelines are clearly covered at the beginning of the book. Then comes the fairly standard variety of recipes from beverages to desserts, with a chapter on campfire cooking as well. All feature ingredients most children will like. There isn't a trace of tofu anywhere; the overall tone is homespun and down-to-earth. Illustrations from the original editions are used throughout, as is a red-and-white checkerboard motif, adding a note of old-fashioned charm. For the most part, directions are clear and easy to follow. Occasionally, though, readers are not warned about potentially tricky steps (as in Baker's Bread in a Bag, which calls for yeast and "1 cup very warm water," without advising the use of a thermometer for the water). Children young enough to enjoy the series will probably need adult help with most of the recipes. This is not so beautifully designed or naturally integrated as Barbara Walker's The Little House Cookbook (HarperCollins, 1979), but libraries in which the series is popular will want to add it. --Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library,
