On the very day the Hollisters move to their new home on the shores of Pine Lake in Shoreham, their adventures begin. First, the moving van carrying their toys and their father's important new invention disappears. Next they learn that their house is said to be haunted and that a treasure is hidden in it!

At once all of them set about solving these mysteries. Helpful Pam, pigtailed Holly, little Sue, freckled Ricky and young Pete, each contribute to the adventures and good times. Mother and Father are always at hand to share the excitment and fun. Very much a part of the family are Zip, the collie, and White Nose, the cat, who has quite an adventurous life of her own.

While exploring their new town and making new friends, the busy Hollisters find time for a lot of clever and exciting detective work. Clues are picked up in the house when a secret stairway is discovered. Then, on the trail of a mysterious intruder, the chase leads to a deserted hut on Blackberry Island.

Over seventy action-packed illustrations make the story—and the Hollister family—so vivid that the reader has a feeling of really sharing in the adventures of this lovable and interesting family.
