Item Details
Description
"The Happy Hollisters and the Ghost Horse Mystery" by Jerry West Doubleday and Company, First Edition with copyright 1965 on the copyright page.

Hard boards, original red faux leather with illustration on the front board, black lettering on front board and spine [a shelf wear, bumped corners, surface damage to front board, pencil writing and scratches on backboard: see photos]; 5.1/2" x 8.1/2", black and red illustrated endpapers and red illustration on title page; 180 pages with many red illustrations, some soiling, good/ very good condition.

Not long after the Hollisters, Indy and Emma Rhodes arrive on Wicket-ee-nock Island, they discover that something is very much amiss. The Franklins, who live on the island, seem to be hiding something in their barn. The Franklins warn them not to go near the barn. A prowler is seen near the abandoned inn where the Hollisters are staying. Later, their belongings are ransacked, and they receive a fake telegram, supposedly from Mrs. Hollister, ordering them to return home. Then, one night, the ghost horse looks eerily out of the fog. When the Hollisters realize that someone is trying to scare them off the island, they are determined to find out why. A man with a beard and a foreign accent saves them from drowning, but, then disappears into the night. A pair of Lipizzan horses, a scrap of paper bearing a coat-of-arms, and a secret tunnel, provide several clues, and after experiencing some harrowing moments, the Hollisters set out to find the valuable diamond encrusted coat-of-arms that is the heart of the mystery of the ghost horse. In the process, they learn a great deal about the work of the Audubon Society and about the training of the world-famous Lipizzaners.

The Happy Hollisters is a series of books about a family who loves to solve mysteries. The series was published by the Stratemeyer Syndicate and entirely written by Andrew E. Svenson (1910-1975) under the pseudonym Jerry West. All 33 volumes in this children's mystery series were written based in part on the real-life adventures of his own six children as they were growing up in New Jersey in the 1950s and 1960s.

Helen S. Hamilton (1921-2014) illustrated the books.

Andrew E. Svenson ("Jerry West") was a prolific author with more than 80 children's books to his credit, he is also known for his work outlining, editing, writing, and/or rewriting for the Hardy Boys (as "Franklin W. Dixon"), the Bobbsey Twins (as "Laura Lee Hope"), and the Tollivers (as "Alan Stone").
