The Bobbsey Twins' Adventure in the Country (Bobbsey Twins, #2) [PDF]

by Laura Lee Hope
I read the first version of this book, I believe it was drastically changed when reprinted in the 1940s (or possibly 1960s).As a result, the plotline described on this website is in NO way similar to the book I just read.

The original, from around the turn of the century, was quite good! It is an entertaining and easy to read glimpse at the life of a young, upper middle class family in New England.The authors must not have hit on, yet, the idea of making these books primarily children's mystery stories yet, because this book cannot be described as a mystery. It is just a story, about a family's summer trip to visit relatives in the country. It is fascinating to read what must have been common, every day adventures for children in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Many things are (obviously) different, and yet much is still so similar and familiar.

It was and is a great book, if you can look past the hugely racist portrayal of Dinah, the Bobbsey's cook/maid (on the same level as Mickey Rooney's portrayal of Audrey Hepburn's Japanese landlord in Breakfast at Tiffany's).
