Vintage Silver Age Mystery
Scavenger Hunt Category: Statue
Date Finished: September 5, 2016
I rarely read juvenile books now that the kids are older, but this was a good read. My sister and I first discovered this series at our grandparents’ house, probably left over from an older cousin. I read the first one to our kids and always meant to get through more of this series with them, but they grew too fast. Here the family visits Denmark and they get involved with a mystery on the plane before even landing. Their investigation of a stolen Little Mermaid statue taken them to all the sites in and around Copenhagen, including to a number of (Lutheran) churches and the ship models hanging from the rafters. I learned a lot, though I wish my vacations were as interesting as Hollisters’ are.
