The Bobbsey twins – both sets! – are going on a picnic with their parents at the Meredith estate. They are looking forward to a happy, fun-filled time. Which, it is, only – someone steals their blueberry pie! And while they’re driving home, they see… a cheetah?!?

It turns out that the cheetah is from the small zoo on the Meredith estate. The Bobbseys make friends with the caretaker at the zoo and learn that he has been separated from his brother and sister since he was twelve years old. He’s neve
Reading on Gutenberg, because children's series written around the turn of the century fascinate me (not their updated incarnations, with all their political-correctness). Just the fact that Mr Bobbsey calls his children fat (in an admiring way) is hilarious! But dated or no, these parents need to either up their skills or get some leashes for the younger kids. Exhibit A: On losing his children for the bajillionth time, Mr Bobbsey says, "Now, as I said, don't worry. In a city children are always ...more
Although somewhat dated, The Bobsey Twins' series has value for 8-12 year olds. I read it to my 8 year old and she enjoyed the story. And there was vocabulary she learned, but it wasn't so above her head that she became disinterested or frustrated. The text was written so difficult vocabulary can be understood thru the context of the story. The parenting depicted in the book may offend some helicopter parents of today. But it's a story from a different time.

I read every Bobbsey Twins adventures I could get my hands on from the age of 9 through 11. Summers were wonderful and I could borrow from the library and read these books. I could borrow 8 books every 2 weeks. Soon, I needed more than that and had to fight the librarian for more books. Now, I can do 8 books in a day. Sigh.

Good grief, can't those younger Bobbsey's stay put for a second? As a parent I'm horrified at how quickly they wander off - even after being told several times not to. Sheesh! Sorry, can't give this one better - too many coincidences though I enjoyed the trip to New York City with all the Twins. A fun read, but not their best.
I spent a week or more at my Grandparents during the summer. They had all the Bobbsey Twin books and many Nancy Drew books. So I would lay in my Grandmother's garden and read. I remember enjoy all of the adventure of the Bobbsey Twins.
