I read this book as a child and now that I reread it, I still find it very funny. The narrative is simple and the story is entertaining. Furthermore, the fact that they are children who discover the mysteries makes it even more unique.It is a book to relax and read quickly.

Re-reading, I remembered that this one was never one of my favorites of the books we had when we were kids.

But I have to say something about this series:

It irks me that we have now entire generations of helicopter parents, and kids whose every moment is scheduled. I am so happy that I was brought up the way I was - we were outside for most of the day, and just had to be home by dinner. And here is where I plug Lenore Skenazy and her Free Range Kids (http://www.freerangekids.com) and Facebook pag

Los Hollister es la serie de libros que me inició definitivamente en la lectura. Recuerdo haber leído el primero y, con todo el dinero que había ahorrado por mi primera comunión y en todos los años anteriores, ir a por los 32 restantes, que costaban 600 pelas cada uno. Los compré todos en la feria del libro de Ceuta, lo recuerdo perfectamente, y volví a mi casa con dos bolsas y una mochila llenas de libros, que me duraron tres meses exactamente, para sorpresa/preocupación de mi madre.
