Will these two siblings help solve a family mystery? Find out in one of the earliest Newbery Honor Award winners! Brother and sister, Oliver and Janet, are excited to spend their summer with their cousin Jasper, who has always been cheerful and fun to be around. However, when the children arrive at his home, Jasper is despondent and distracted—nothing like the cousin they know. Eventually, the children discover that their cousin has been having trouble with a neighbor but is doing nothing to fix the problem! The siblings want to help . . . but how? Enter in The Beeman, a neighbor who regales Oliver and Janet with enchanting stories of local history. The two siblings visit the friendly neighbor more and more to hear his amazing stories but continue to wonder how they can help their cousin. As it turns out, The Beeman's tales of their family history just so happen to contain the secret to helping Jasper with his villainous neighbor! With original illustrations and beautiful, descriptive prose, this classic award-winner is perfect for young readers eager for a good, wholesome mystery. Whether you read it alone or as a family, get ready to be swept away by The Windy Hill!
