The Happy Hollisters and the Scarecrow Mystery: Volume 14 ()



Reseña del editor

The happy hollisters and the Scarecrow Mystery (#14 in the happy hollisters series)
When Mr. Hollister’s sport and toy store, The Trading Post, is robbed, his main concern is for his invention, a new type of collapsible canoe. He is therefore surprised to discover that a Geiger counter and a couple of pickaxes are the only missing items. After putting the problem of the theft in the hands of the police, the family turns to the matter of testing the canoe. An interested buyer who owns a forest tract has offered his property to the hollisters for this purpose. They plan to camp out in the forest and test the canoe on the lake and rapids within the boundaries of the property. All goes well until they come across a “talking” scarecrow blocking the road to their campsite and warning them to turn back because danger awaits them in the forest. The hollisters refuse to take the warning seriously and continue to set up their camp. From this point on the strange and unusual events that beset them in the forest seem mysteriously connected with the theft at the store and a search for uranium. Another exciting adventure that will be welcomed by the hundreds of thousands of happy Hollister fans.
First published in 1957, this charming mystery-adventure story, faithfully reproduced, is now available in paperback and eBook for the first time! Written for boys and girls between the ages of six and twelve, The happy hollisters are wholesome books, with an accent on humor and good, clean fun. Integrity always pays off and right wins over wrong. Parents, grandparents, and teachers love these books for their healthy celebration of life in simpler times. Kids are thrilled with the fast-paced action and will not want to put them down. The action-packed illustrations make the story – and the Hollister family – so vivid that the reader has a feeling of really sharing in on the adventures of this lovable and interesting family.

Biografía del autor

The happy hollisters by Jerry West was actually written by Andrew E. svenson, a prolific yet somewhat anonymous, writer of books for children. Jerry West was the pen name assigned to svenson when he started writing The happy hollisters for the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a book packager well-known for its development of children’s book series including Tom Swift, The Bobbsey Twins, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew. Many of these series were intended to have long publishing lives, and were written by multiple authors using the same pseudonym. The happy hollisters, however, were all written by Andrew svenson, whose identity as Jerry West was kept secret until several years after his death in 1975.
Andrew svenson was born in Belleville, NJ, in 1910, and his interest in writing started early. He was editor of his high school newspaper and yearbook at Barringer High School in Newark, and then went on to study Creative Writing at the University of Pittsburgh. After his graduation in 1932, he worked as a reporter and editor for the Newark Star Eagle and the Newark Evening News.
Andrew svenson was encouraged by his friend Howard Garis (author of Uncle Wiggily) to try his hand at juvenile fiction.
He joined the Stratemeyer Syndicate as a writer in 1948, where he contributed to established series as Franklin W. Dixon (The Hardy Boys) and as Laura Lee Hope (The Bobbsey Twins).
The first volume in his own original series, The happy hollisters, was published in 1953 by Doubleday & Company, and he was made a partner in the Stratemeyer Syndicate in 1961. As he wrote and developed 33 titles in The happy hollisters, he was also creating additional series for children under other pen names: Bret King by Dan Scott and The Tollivers by Alan Stone.
Under various pseudonyms, Andrew svenson wrote more than 70 adventure and mystery novels for children, which were published in 17 languages and sold millions of copies. The Hollister family was modeled on his own family and he often used svenson family events and travels as the foundation for The happy hollisters books. He also kept copious newspaper clippings for story ideas, and interviewed hundreds of school children and teachers for additional suggestions. These ideas were then worked into his storylines, adding an educational element that was appreciated by parents and educators alike. The children loved the stories for their elements of danger and excitement geared to their comprehension level.
