Item Details
Description
"The Happy Hollisters and the Old Clipper Ship" by Jerry West, published by Doubleday and Company, First Edition with MCMLVI (1956) on the copyright page.

Original dust jacket [a little wear]; hard boards, original red faux leather with illustration on the front board, black lettering on front board and spine [a little wear and soiling]; 5.1/2" x 8.1/2", black and blue illustrated endpapers and blue illustration on title page; 184 pages with a few blue illustrations, very good condition.

A rain storm and an unexpected guest bring this new mystery into the Hollisters' lives when a lightning-struck tree branch falls on a car in front of their home in Shoreham.

The car is occupied by a young Hawaiian, Tom King, who, although not seriously hurt, needs help from the Hollisters to get out of his car. While resting in their home, he tells them he has come all the way across the country in search of a log book from an unidentified clipper ship. The only clue he has are a few sketches of the ship which he hopes will be identified by one of the old clipper ship captains he has been told to see. This log book is important to Tom for it will prove his grandfather and grandmother were married on this ship giving him evidence that he is legally entitled to the inheritance left by his uncle.

How is this mystery connected with Gregory Grant and Lisa Sarno, the famous movie stars, and a motion picture in which the Hollister children have an active part? And who is the sinister stranger in the checkered shirt? Why should he first try to buy Tom's sketches of the clipper ship and then, failing that, try to steal them? From the beginning to end this new story will keep you guessing as the Hollisters once again prove their ability as master sleuths.

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").
