You see, I think that series books are wildly popular. Recently, on Facebook, I asked a question about series books and childhood memories. Lots of people wanted to talk about series books. You can read about it on my Facebook wall. The response confirmed my thinking. Series books are popular!
The Happy Hollisters series was one that several people mentioned, so I went on a treasure hunt at STL Books in lovely Kirkwood, Missouri.
The owner, Robin Moore Theiss, showed me a complete set of The Happy Hollisters.
She also had Nancy Drew books that were gems.
But Nancy Drew hasn't disappeared. This morning, I found a whole box of them at a sale, just waiting for someone from the new generation of Nancy Drew readers.
