(4.2 stars; 36 reviews)

The Bobbsey Twins are the principal characters of what was, for many years, the Stratemeyer Syndicate's longest-running series of children's novels, penned under the pseudonym Laura Lee Hope. The first of 72 books was published in 1904, the last in 1979. The books related the adventures of the children of the middle-class Bobbsey family, which included two sets of fraternal twins: Bert and Nan, who were 12 years old, and Flossie and Freddie, who were six.

Cute children's tale


(5 stars)

I thought I recalled The Bobbsey Twins as sleuths. This was a pleasant surprise :)

pretty good


(4.5 stars)

I prefer when one reader does the whole book instead of different people reading different chapters. Other than that the book was great, though I do wish that when ever anything bad and mysterious happen it wasn't always Danny Rugs fault but I still love the story Bobbsey twins and there friends🙂

Great

👎Big no for me! I did not like how the author made one of the girls prejudice with her African American doll.
