Meet the Author

Laura Lee Hope was born (sort of) in 1904, when the pseudonym was first used for the first volume of "The Bobbsey Twins." She is not a real person, and in fact, quite often was a man.
Most of the time, the books with her name were written by Howard R. Garis and his wife Lilian Garis.
There are literally hundreds of works using this penname, spanning nearly three decades.

I lived and breathed both the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew mysteries during my early childhood. By the age of 7 yrs. I was gobbling these books @ 1x/day, tried to convince my folks to buy the entire series' of both, but had to satisfy myself with borrowing most from the library. By 8 or 9 I'd read each at least twice and eventually had to move on to other material, but it was the Bobbsey Twins that sparked a lifelong passion for reading that has me in it's grip to this very day! Thank you Laura Lee Hope, who I now know was Edward Stratemeyer! Read these to your children and encourage them to read them independently, either bought or borrowed. The Hardy Boys is another series in this vein that is aimed specifically at boy readers, but truthfully my brother and I swapped our Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries with abandon, and both of us enjoyed the others' books with no regard for what their "target" demographic was.Five stars, without reservation, obviously for the youthful reader!

Looking forward to re-reading a favorite book while growing up. I received many of Nancy Drew and BoBusey Twin books for Christmas!

My parents acquired all of The Bobbsey Twins books for me and my siblings. We really enjoyed each new arrival - I passed them on to my children. Now I am purchasing one or two at a time for my grandchildren which they enjoy on my Nook when they visit.

My grand mother read this books, then my mother and then me. I liked the BOX CAR children better, the HARDY BOYS, NANCY DREW, ENCLYCOPEDIA BROWN, TRIXIE BALDWIN, and the HAPPY HOLLISTERS. But when a kid needs to read, any book will do. I did not realize how much prejudice against African Americans there are in these books. I was simply amazed. A little five year girl placing cardboard to seperate her black doll from the white dolls in a drawer, twisted my insides in a bunch. How terrible for other races. I am glad i did not recommend these books to my children or grands. Quite frankly, I had forgotten about this series. When this one showed up as recommended, I paid my .99 and settled in for a trip down memory lane. This was not what I remembered, life seldom is. I did not feel nostalgic, I felt ashamed. One star for endurance, one star for editing and proper grammer. I will not tecommend this book to children and if asked, I will tell them why. AD
