Overview

WARNING TO PARENTS at the end of this description. The Bobbsey Twins series is about two sets of twins, Nan & Bert (age 8) and Flossie & Freddie (age 4). They progressively get older at the beginning of the series, until the ages of 12 & 6 (don’t do the math), then seem to stay the same age beyond that. The Bobbsey Family’s lifestyle progresses accordingly to the year each book was written (horse-drawn carriages become automobiles, etc.) The books concern the everyday antics and mischief children get into as they grow. This book picks up where the previous one left off. The Bobbsey are off to spend the summer on Blueberry Island. Their adventures include gypsies and a cave.
NOW THE WARNING. These books are presented EXACTLY as they were in the year they were written. Words commonly used back then, in many cases have become taboo in today’s society. The treatment of the African-American characters is so stereotypical, it is almost unbelievable. Your children will have questions. Be prepared to explain how far society has progressed in a hundred years.

About the Author

Laura Lee Hope is a pseudonym for every author of the Bobbsey Twin Series. Edward Stratemeyer himself is believed to have written the first volume in its original form in 1904. When the original series was brought to its conclusion in 1979, it had reached a total of 72 volumes. The first twenty or so were rewritten at least once. At least two abortive attempts to restart the series were launched after this, but neither effort saw the popularity that the original series achieved. Speculation that Stratemeyer also wrote the second and third volumes of the series is believed to be incorrect; these books are now attributed to Lilian Garis, wife of Howard Garis, who is credited with volumes 4–28 and 41. At least a dozen other authors are credited with the rest of the series.
