Book Excerpt: 
. . .e was astir early, for not only was a happy day promised, but there was Frisky, the runaway, to be looked over. Mr. Richard Bobbsey, Freddie's father, left on an early train for Lakeport, and would not come back to Meadow Brook until Saturday afternoon.

"Let me go out and see Frisky," Freddie insisted, even before his breakfast had been served. "I want to be sure it's her."

"Yes, that's her," Freddie admitted, "'cause there's the rope that cut my hands when I was a real fireman!"

But Frisky didn't seem to care a bit about ropes or firemen, but just chewed and chewed like all cows do, as if there was nothing in this world to do but eat.

"Come on, sonny," called Dinah. "You can help me pick de radishes fo' breakfast," and presently our little boy, with the kind-hearted maid, was up in the garden looking for the best radishes of the early crop.

The Bobbsey Twins in the Country by Laura Lee Hope (Grosset and Dunlap 1950) (Fiction - Children's). This is actually the second installment in the Bobbsey Twins series. The children find adventures on a farm in the country during summer vacation. My rating: 7/10, finished 1965.

For those who are not familiar with this series, it features the Bobbsey siblings who are two sets of fratern...more

When I was growing up I had three Bobbsey Twins books - the first, second, and third in the series, published by Whitman, copyrighted in 1950/1953, though mine were probably printed in the 60's. I think these were close to the originals published at the turn of the 20th century.

I felt this book really wasn’t exciting enough for readers of today. It would put a modern child to sleep. All it does is you read a daily adventure of a group of kids playing, from a upper class family. I warn that the maid, Dinah, is “colored” and the author gave her all the stereotypes. ( eati...more

Why is it the boys seemed to have all the fun?

I read the first version of this book, I believe it was drastically changed when reprinted in the 1940s (or possibly 1960s). As a result, the plotline described on this website is in NO way similar to the book I just read.

The original, from around the turn of the century, was quite good! It is a...more
