One does begin to wonder why Mrs. Bobbsey lets the younger set of twins leave the house! Inevitably, one or both of them lose their way.

In this story, the Bobbsey family returns from a visit to their uncle's farm. On the train, they meet Tommy Todd, one of the "fresh air" children from the city's poor. A charity organization takes these children to the country for some fresh air (hence the name). Of course, the Bobbseys befriend Tommy and their family goes about helping him and the grandmother w

Another very good Bobbsey Twins book. This one, at home, centers around a young boy the Bobbsey's met on the train home from Meadow Brook, Tommy Todd. Tommy is a Fresh Air boy that has been in the country for a time to get him out of the hot city and into a place where he can run, be in the fresh air, get good meals for part of the summer. His mother died when he was very young, and soon after that his father left for sea. He stays with his grandmother in a bad part of the same town the Bobbsey' ...more
This book was the best Bobbsey Twins yet! Why? Tommy Todd for one. He was such a sweet boy, working so hard to take care of his Grandmother. The writing in this book also seemed to go up in quality by a notch. I am very eager for the next story.

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.
Growing up in the '50's, I owned and read the first 40 of the Bobbsey Twins. These are the books that first hooked me on reading. These old editions are terribly racist, but there are new ones that have eliminated that problem. But for this reason, I am not rating the series.
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.
I'm working on entering all the books I've ever read. This book was one of them. I read this book when I was 10 years old.
The ending was great! Quite a surprise. What joy to hear my granddaughter squeal with glee at the outcome.
This is my first Bobbsey Twins' book. I found it entertaining if a little unbelievable.

Cute children's book. Learned a little about preparing chestnuts in this book.
