The newsletter began with a Happy Birthday to Andrew E. Svenson who was the actual author of The Happy Hollisters series and also some of the Hardy Boys and Bobbsey Twins books. He used the pen name Jerry West for The Happy Hollisters series.
Andrew Svenson would have been 107 years old today.
Unfortunately my pictures are not so good tonight. I am a bit jet lagged and didn’t pay too much attention. I took the pictures and then put the books all away before checking them 🙂
I will have to do another photo shoot sometime.
However, you can still see that the covers are very colorful.
Plus, I need to take another picture that doesn’t cut off half of the last one.
Here are some of the books without dust jackets. In this picture you can see that there are a couple editions of the books. Some of them have a logo and others have ‘Garden City’ at the base of the spine. The logo is one that was used by Doubleday.
Here we see the first book in the series in four different configurations. I only have one dust jacket that has the ‘Garden City’ imprint. I of course will likely be watching out for additional books that have dust jackets with the ‘Garden City’ imprint. I still have some collecting to do.
In my earlier The Happy Hollisters post I mentioned that I planned on reading though the whole series. I started the challenge in April last year and finished in December. It was fun to read them sequentially and also to read the ones that I had never read before.
Have you read any of The Happy Hollisters books?
