The Bobbsey Twins of Lakeport by Laura Lee Hope
The Bobbsey twins are actually two sets of twins that are all brothers and sisters. There is a boy and a girl in each set of twins. The older set of twins’ names are Nan and Bert. The younger set of twins’ names are Flossie and Freddie. I really like the name Flossie.
This story is about the twins helping an old lady named Mrs. Marden to find her valuables before her house was going to be smashed down. It was going to be smashed down because it was so old. So this story is a mystery, which is my favorite kind. I think all the Bobbsey Twins books will be mysteries.
Mrs. Marden used to have a cat, and she had to give it away to a friend named Mr. Ryan. The cat runs away and goes back into Mrs. Marden’s house. It gets into the chimney. When Freddie and Flossie rescue the kitty out of the chimney, they discover a metal box with Mrs. Marden’s valuables inside.
There is another boy named Danny who plays tricks on all the twins. So they decided to play a trick on him! The twins took a stuffed kangaroo of Flossie’s and then put a hot water bottle that was filled with hot water into the kangaroo’s pouch. When Danny opened his desk at school, he thought there was a real kangaroo inside. It was so funny.
