Just recently I found the last books that I was looking for to complete one of the series of books that I am collecting.
See my post: Manteca Book Acquisitions
Last month while in Texas I found the last two books, The Happy Hollisters and the Ice Carnival Mystery and The Happy Hollisters and the Castle Rock Mystery, that I needed to complete the series of 33 books.

In the first picture above you can see what the books look like without a dust jacket. I really don’t remember having dust jackets on any of the ones I read as a kid. I just remember the red books. The dust jacket on The Happy Hollisters and the Trading Post Mystery is very colorful.
Yesterday I found three that I was missing. I would like to have the complete series with these colorful jackets.
Here is The Happy Hollisters and the Mystery in Skyscraper City. I also remember this one as they visited Chinatown. For a little boy in Iowa it was fascinating to read about the interesting places they visited.
I have a lot of great memories of reading these books when I was a kid. However, I didn’t have access to even half of the titles. Now that I have the entire series I want to read through them in order.
I will be starting the challenge soon and will probably write some update posts as I work my way through the series.
Now to hunt for the seven books with dust jackets I am missing and possibly better ones of a few that are not in good shape.
Have you read any of the Happy Hollisters books?
