50 Books Real Simple Readers Love
The Happy Hollisters, by Jerry West
My mom bought me a kids’ series called The Happy Hollisters. It was my first serious set of books and I got every one of them BRAND NEW. My mom, unfortunately, died when I was a kid,
so these books were even more special to me. I still have all The Happy Hollisters. My son read them and loved them too. Thanks, Mom! —Ginie Croft Lundeen
It was always a new mystery each month and I couldn’t wait until the next book came. —Sue Hovland
I read and reread every book. Hiding under my blanket with a flashlight was an everyday occurrence. —Kathleen Jimenez
I could not put them down as a kid and could not stand the monthlong wait to get a new one in the mail. I would read it in a weekend. —Karen Haskins
I loved the mystery in each story and all the adventures they went on as a family. —Cheryl TerHaar
So awesome as a kid growing up in a large family too. —Kate Steigerwald
