WRITER OF THE WEEK Gertrude Chandler Warner, creator of the beloved Boxcar Children series of books, was born April 16, 1890. She initially wrote the first volume to amuse herself and later revised the text so that it could be easily understood by the children she taught, who often did not speak English as their first language.
