Childhood Favorites...Happy Hollisters

Childhood favorites. Everyone has a favorite book or author from childhood. A book that touched them or changed them. A book that perhaps initiated their love of reading and put them on the path of libraries and learning.

Childhood Favorites is a monthly series focusing on beloved books from the past. 

Donald Zolan, Quiet Time.

I adored series'. I absolutely loved books about siblings who solved mysteries. The Hollister children were among my favorites.


Pete, Pam, Ricky, Holly, and Sue had many adventures together. Their father owns The Trading Post, a hardware store and toy shop, in the fictional town of Shoreham. The children sometimes help in the store and go on trips as a family when their dad travels to find things to sell. There is always an adventure to be had and the children have many opportunities to solve mysteries.

One of my favorite stories was when the Hollisters went to Denmark.

These books were written in the 50s and 60s by the same publishing syndicate that published Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. They were clean and fun. And I adored them.

What about you? What is one of your childhood favorites?
