Item description for Elsie's Winter Trip: Book 26 (The Original Elsie Classics) by Martha Finley...
Penned from the mid-nineteenth through the early twentieth centuries, Martha Finley's original Elsie Dinsmore books were the most popular books for young girls of their time. The first title of the series, Elsie Dinsmore, was painstakingly written over several years, and when it became an overnight success, her young readers demanded more of Elsie's adventures. Finley and her publisher decided to expand the book into a series of six titles. However, demand for more of Elsie, its endearing heroine, was so strong that the seriese ventually reached twenty-eight titles. Elsie Dinsmore outsold every juvenile book of the era, with the exception of Little Women.
Books 19 through 28 are being reintroduced in the spring of 2001, largely intact with only slight editorial changes to improve readability or to remove antiquated language or expressions. The joy that Elsie has brought to millions of readers aged eight to eighty can be experienced again as this sweet child of impeccable character grows into a young woman, marries and raises a family of her own, and shares delightful experiences with her children and grandchildren.
Lulu sets up housekeeping at Sunnyside, and the entire family enjoys a winter trip to the Caribbean.

YawnZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Feb 19, 2003
Following thier honeymoons, Jucilla and Evelyn set up housekeeping with their husbands, Chester and Max ,in a new shared home, Sunnyside. The family enjoys a round of parties held in honor of the newlyweds. WHEn Max returns to the navy, the rest of the family travels with Grandma Elise during the cold months on board the Dolphin to several Caribbean islands and the shores of South America. Elsie and Ned Raymond acquire pet monkeys ,and Ned takes an unforunate tumble overboard but is saved by a quick-thinking sailor. That justs about sums up the whole book. I can read these books in 30 mn. flat because they are sooooo boring. Books 1-14 is ok, but after that it is entierly boring. They even have Cp. Raymond reading out of a history book!
