I have been plunged back in time by 55 years.
My baby brother thought I might need some reading material. So he ordered a box of books to be delivered to me. I should read them first and then take them over to his almost completed lake home so someday his Grandchildren can read the books he read as a child.
I was not aware that BOTH of my brothers read my books…
Mine were purchased at the old Woolworth Store in Detroit Lakes Minnesota. Back then the books were less than a dollar (97 or 98 cents plus tax??). The art work on the originals was slightly different also…the were called Cello Editions. I can recall standing in front of the display of books and looking at all the covers…wondering which book I should buy next…decisions…decisions.
I finished the first book…I can see why the series first captured my attention…there is some kind of calamity or adventure in every chapter…it is a page turner…and leaves you hanging at the end of the book so that you will buy the next book in the series.
The original author (Julie Campbell Tatham) of this series wrote just the first six books and after that many different ghost writers took over for the publishing company and wrote under the pseudonym Kathryn Kenny …it seems they found that young readers were buying their books and they wanted to continue after the original author stopped writing.
So now I am exploring books from my youth.
