Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut in 1890. Her childhood home was near a railroad station, and she often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a train car. That dream inspired her many years later when she decided to write a children’s adventure book that was easy to read but exciting, too. That book was The Boxcar Children.
