With dozens of books available, your son or daughter will find many adventures and mysteries that they’ll absolutely adore.
Every story about the Hollisters is perfect for any time of the year. But since we’re quickly approaching the slightly spooky season, we thought it’d be fun to give you our favorite Hollister family books to read in the fall.
The Happy Hollisters and the Haunted House Mystery
Since Halloween takes place during the fall season, what better way to get into the mood than by reading about a haunted house? The Happy Hollisters and the Haunted House Mystery begins with an ad looking for a ghost hunter to get rid of the spooks that have taken over an antique house. Of course, the Hollisters are intrigued by this unusual job, so they work with their neighborhood friends to solve the mystery of flickering lights in the windows and frightening cries that can be heard from within the home.
The Happy Hollisters and the Scarecrow Mystery
The Happy Hollisters and the Scarecrow Mystery is another adventure that’s perfect for the fall season because it definitely has a spooky, autumnal feel to it. The story involves a theft and the invention of a collapsible canoe. With the theft being handled by the police, the Hollisters focus on testing the canoe. This leads to the discovery of a talking scarecrow that warns them to turn back because danger awaits them.
The Happy Hollisters and the Ghost Horse Mystery
To continue with the Halloween theme, The Happy Hollisters and the Ghost Horse Mystery is the perfect follow-up for any of the other books on this list. After arriving on Wicket-ee-nock Island, the Hollisters are thrown into a mystery as the Franklin family warns them not to go near their barn because it isn’t safe. Not long after that, they see a ghost horse staring out from the fog, which takes them into an adventure like none they’ve ever faced before.
The Happy Hollisters and the Monster Mystery
We’ve already discussed stories about a haunted house and ghosts, so now it’s time to turn to a real-life monster. Okay, despite the “monster” in its title, The Happy Hollisters and the Monster Mystery will probably turn out to feature something else entirely. But the thrills are real. The creature in question is called the Shoreham Monster, and the Hollister family is more than ready and willing to figure out what’s really going on.
The Happy Hollisters and the Mystery of the Golden Witch
It should come as no surprise that we’re going to end our list of The Happy Hollistersbooks to read in the fall with one that involves a unusual kind of witch. The Happy Hollisters and the Mystery of the Golden Witch starts off innocently enough as the Hollister family goes out to buy a Halloween pumpkin. But after coming across a wagon filled with pumpkins that has been tipped over and a mysterious honking horn, the Hollisters get involved with yet another spooky—but not too scary—mystery.
