One of the longest running story series for children is "The Bobbsey Twins" and it has delighted children and their parents for over a hundred years now. Follow the adventures of two sets of young twins at the turn of the Twentieth Century when there were no telephones, radios, or televisions, and horses and carriages were common-place. * * * * When the series begins (1904), Bert and Nan are eight, and Flossie and Freddie are four. The twins enjoy wonderful days filled with sunshine and love with their playmates, Grace, Nellie, and Charlie, and get into and out of trouble as only little kids can manage. Their dog, Snap, and their cat, Snoop, go along on many of their adventures as the twins spend the summer on Blueberry Island and many things happened to them, to their goat, cat, and dog, and to a queer boy. Freddie lost some of his "go-around" bugs, and there is something in the book about a cave. Then the family goes on a voyage to an island off the coast of Florida, to rescue a poor, sick boy who had been left there by mistake, and many things happen on their trip. Finally, the family visits our nation's capital Washington, and see not only George Washington's Monument, but the president as well, and all the while Bert and Nan search for two of Miss Pompret's lost China dishes. * * * * "The Bobbsey Twins" is one of the many children series written in the early 20th Century by the Stratemeyer Syndicate. Usually the first book in each series was written by Edward Stratemeyer, who then produced outlines for the other books in the series and hired writers to produce the actual books using a pseudonym. For the Bobbsey Twins' series the fake name was Laura Lee Hope. * * * * "The Bobbsey Twins on Blueberry Island" was published in 1917, "The Bobbsey Twins on the Deep Blue Sea" was published in 1918, and "The Bobbsey Twins in Washington" was published in 1919. All three were written by Howard R. Garis and illustrated by Walter Rogers. * * * * This edition includes the original twelve illustrations. * * * * Check out the Flying Chipmunk Publishing catalog at Check out our other Laura Lee Hope books at www.FlyingChipmunkPublishing.com, or Friend us on Facebook for our latest Children's, Juvenile, and Adult releases.
