Bargain (Kindle) The Boxcar Children: Mysteries #1 ($1.99)

EBook versions of Gertrude Chandler Warner's The Boxcar Children Mystery series are now out, and as promo, the first book The Boxcar Children: The Boxcar Children Mysteries #1 is just $1.99 on Amazon.

Quote:
Product Description:

The Boxcar Children, published sixty years ago in 1942, has captured the imaginations of generations of readers. For the first time, and in honor of the 60th anniversary, Albert Whitman & Company is publishing a special edition of The Boxcar Children.

Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, four orphaned brothers and sisters, suddenly appear in a small town. No one knows who these young wanderers are or where they have come from. Frightened to live with a grandfather they have never met, the children make a home for themselves in an abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Henry, the oldest, goes to town to earn money and buy food and supplies.

Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life themselves--until Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her.

Thanks so much for this! One of the Boxcar Children books (Mystery Ranch to be precise) was the first book that really had an impact and out the magic of reading for me - and things have never been the same since! I can still remember how I felt when I was reading it (over 40 years ago) and love the idea of having that book in my digital library - so of course I couldn't stop at The Boxcar Children, I had to get Mystery Ranch, too!

I thought that I was quite well up on children's books, but this series is totally unknown to me! Is it well-known in the US?

I actually never heard of these before arcadata started posting about them but there is a big article about them at Wikipedia. Apparently the series is still being written and set in current times.

Quote:
The Boxcar Children is a children's literary franchise originally created and written by American writer and first-grade school teacher,[1] Gertrude Chandler Warner. Today, the series includes well over 100 titles...Only the first 19 stories were written by creator Warner. Other books in the series have been written by other writers, but always feature the byline "Created by Gertrude Chandler Warner". The recent books in the series are set in the present day, whereas the original books were set in the 1940s and 1950s.
