Books One through Twelve of the celebrated Boxcar Children Mysteries, now available as an ebook box set—twelve ebooks for the price of ten Since its debut more than half a century ago, the Boxcar Children Mysteries has been one of the most beloved and popular children’s collections of all time. Collected here are the first twelve classic stories, following the Alden children from their first adventure living in an old boxcar all the way through to their exciting journey on a houseboat. This box set is the perfect introduction to a timeless and cherished series. This enriched ebook box set includes an illustrated biography of author Gertrude Chandler Warner, with photos from the archives at the Warner Museum in Putnam, Connecticut. Gertrude Chandler Warner (1890–1979) was an American author of children’s books, most notably the nineteen original titles in the Boxcar Children Mysteries series. Warner was raised in Putnam, Connecticut, across the street from a railroad station, which later inspired her to write about children living in a boxcar. In 1918, she began what would become a thirty-two year career teaching first and third grade at the Israel Putnam School. She died in Putnam on August 30, 1979, when she was eighty-nine years old. But the Boxcar Children live on: to this day, talented authors contribute new stories to the series, which now totals over 120 books.

The Boxcar Children
I am so excited to find this series for the IPad. My son read these when he was first learning to read. We then passed them down to my niece and now her daughter has started to read them. Which shows how timeless this series is.
Seems like a good price to me. Loved these as a child. :)
