Overview

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 they visit their uncle in Meadow Brook where a motion picture company films them and they help catch a crook; then Snoop gets stuck on a newly varnished floor, Freddie gets trapped under a fallen lumber stack, and their friend Tommy falls through the ice while skating on the lake; and then the family visits New York City where Freddie and Flossie promptly get lost on the elevated train system and have many other adventures!

“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 at Meadow Brook” was published in 1915, “The Bobbsey Twins at Home” was published in 1916, and “The Bobbsey Twins in a Great City” was published in 1917. All three were written by Howard R. Garis and illustrated by Walter Rogers.
