No. 15 in the popular Stratemeyer Syndicate's The Happy Hollisters series (1953 -1970), The Mystery of the Totem Face takes the family to Alaska. Intrigue, mayhem, and fun ensue.

Written by Andrew E. Svenson under the pseudonym Jerry West, Svenson also wrote for the Hardy Boys and Bobbsey Twins series. What makes The Happy Hollister series unique is that Svenson based the characters on his own children and family life.

The book is charmingly illustrated by Helen S. Hamilton with a family camping scene on the end papers and blue drawings throughout depicting the family's exciting adventures.

Publisher: Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, N.Y. Part of the Doubleday Young Readers Series.

Book is in good condition. It's obvious that it has been read several times or more. The dust jacket is chipped and creased and there is a worn spot on the cover perhaps were a price sticker was peeled away. The book has a lovely red cloth binding with an illustration of the the 5 Hollister children running hand-in-hand. There are two small puncture holes the size of pencil points on the spine.

Dimensions: 8 1/2" x 5 7/8"
