Author, had this to say about this series for kids: 

“Even though my boys are grown, I found
myself wishing they were young again so they could read NO EXIT (The Apple
Grove Gang). This book is beyond refreshing – 
a great story about kids who still play outside, know people in their
town and  have an adventure that makes a
difference in their lives. Hamilton C. Burger’s obvious delight in his  craft shines through on every page. The kids
in this book have real voices and  real

Finally, when their backs are against the wall, and they find out that there is no exit, the real fun and excitement begin.

    These sound like books I would have loved when I was that age, but nowadays it seems kids grow up so fast I don't know if they'd still resonate. I hope so though because kids should enjoy being kids.

    These sound like books I would have devoured when I was growing up. (Heck! I might even like them NOW!) My kids are too busy raising their own kids to have much time for leisure reading, but some of the grands might enjoy them. Thanks for the heads up; I'll look into them for the kiddies.
