- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
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 cat, Snoop, (and after book #4, “The Bobbsey Twins at School,” their dog Snap, too—in Volume 2) goes along on many of their adventures as they build snow houses, ice boats and kites, and find a mysterious ghost wandering in their house at night. Then they take a trip to the country to visit their Uncle Daniel and make their own circus, celebrate the Fourth of July, almost burn down their uncle’s barn, and then help save a neighbor’s henhouse from washing away in a flood! Finally they travel to the seashore to stay at Uncle William’s house where they have more exciting adventures.
“The Bobbsey Twins” is one of the many book series written in the early 20th Century by the Stratemeyer Syndicate. 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 this was Laura Lee Hope.
“The Bobbsey Twins, or Merry Days Indoors and Out” was published in 1904 and written by Edward Stratemeyer; “The Bobbsey Twins in the Country” and “The Bobbsey Twins at the Seashore” were both published in 1907 and written by Lilian C. Garis.
This edition includes the original twelve illustrations. * * * * 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.
