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.

I inherited the Happy Hollisters collection from my mom. Man, did I love these books, which describe with 1950s glee the hijinks that ensue when a bunch of siblings set out to solve various mysteries. I still have the collection of hardbound books that I want to pass down to (hopefully) a daughter someday.

My brother and I are playing a game with these books as adults, we loved them so much when we were kids. We have almost the entire set, and are continually re-reading them as a way of escaping into childhood.
