Happy Hollisters at Sea Gull Beach (3)

by Jerry West Author

Looking forward to a visit to Sea Gull Beach, the Happy Hollister children have a wonderful time giving a play about pirates and American sailors. Then, when they discover that a present they received from Uncle Russ, a lighthouse lamp, contains a real emerald, they are more eager than ever to get to Sea Gull Beach and find out where it came from. They have many exciting and new adventures during their search for the 100-year-old treasure, which is buried with the mystery ship. Pete, in an underwater outfit, visits the sea bottom, while Uncle Russ sketches cartoons of him from a glass-bottom boat. Pete enters his sea gull kite in the big Kite Contest. Holly and Sue are caught on a sandbar with an incoming tide and are rescued by their new friend Rachel. In their search for the treasure, an old tomb and a strange half-house are among the unusual clues that lead the Hollisters to the treasure. To the Happy Hollisters, every day brings new fun and adventures as they eagerly welcome new experiences and new friends. That is why the stories about this lovable family make exciting listening. First published in 1953, these charming mystery-adventure stories, faithfully reproduced, are now available in the audio format for the first time! Written for boys and girls between the ages of six and 12, The Happy Hollisters are wholesome books, with an accent on humor and good, clean fun. Integrity always pays off, and right wins over wrong. This is a perfect gift for the young listener in your life. Parents, grandparents, and teachers love these books for their healthy celebration of life in simpler times. Kids are thrilled with the fast-paced action and will not want to stop listening.
