“The game will be starting soon. We’d better get into the stadium,” said Grandfather.

“Just one other thing,” said Stan. “Craig got a job coaching at the university, too.”

“Oh, I’m glad,” said Jessie. “He’s a good coach.”

“And,” Stan went on, “I’ve been asked to organize the Greenfield Community Center Summer Soccer League again next summer. It’s going to be a league for everyone — all players. I want to make sure you’ll join.”

“Yes!” said Benny.

“Thank you,” said Jessie. “We’ll be there.”

Then they all hurried into the stadium.

“There’s Gillian!” said Violet as they sat down.

“Do you think she’s nervous?” asked Soo Lee.

“I’m sure she is,” said Henry. “But that’s okay. She’ll do a good job anyway.”

“I’m still nervous before a soccer game,” said Benny to his grandfather. “But it’s not as bad. I’m getting better all the time. When I go to the university to play soccer for Gillian, I’ll hardly be nervous at all.”

The players went out onto the field. The referee blew the whistle and the game began.

Benny leaned over to his grandfather. “And don’t worry,” he told him. “If you don’t understand anything about the game, just ask me!”

discovered when she was teaching that many readers who like an exciting story could find no books that were both easy and fun to read. She decided to try to meet this need, and her first book,
The Boxcar Children,
quickly proved she had succeeded.

Miss Warner drew on her own experiences to write the mystery. As a child she spent hours watching trains go by on the tracks opposite her family home. She often dreamed about what it would be like to set up housekeeping in a caboose or freight car — the situation the Alden children find themselves in.

When Miss Warner received requests for more adventures involving Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, she began additional stories. In each, she chose a special setting and introduced unusual or eccentric characters who liked the unpredictable.

While the mystery element is central to each of Miss Warner’s books, she never thought of them as strictly juvenile mysteries. She liked to stress the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness and their solid New England devotion to using up and making do. The Aldens go about most of their adventures with as little adult supervision as possible — something else that delights young readers.

Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Connecticut, until her death in 1979. During her lifetime, she received hundreds of letters from girls and boys telling her how much they liked her books.
