    Good series I really enjoy reading this series. It follows the family as they grow up. My only criticism of this one is that it leaves the story unfinished but I suppose it will be satisfied in the next book. These are worth reading if you like a good, wholesome series in which everything turns out right in the end.

    THE TWO ELSIES is #11 in the Elsie Dinsmore series and one of my personal favorites. Elsie and her family spend the winter at Viamede, the beautiful Louisiana plantation inherited from Elsie's late mother. While there, all of the children attend a nearby school. Hot-tempered Lulu Raymond dislikes her music teacher and during a heated argument they come to blows. After he strikes her with a pointer, she smacks him across the face with her book and gives him a black eye! This is perhaps the THE TWO ELSIES is #11 in the Elsie Dinsmore series and one of my personal favorites. Elsie and her family spend the winter at Viamede, the beautiful Louisiana plantation inherited from Elsie's late mother. While there, all of the children attend a nearby school. Hot-tempered Lulu Raymond dislikes her music teacher and during a heated argument they come to blows. After he strikes her with a pointer, she smacks him across the face with her book and gives him a black eye! This is perhaps the funniest scene in the entire 28-book series, which doesn't normally deliver much humor. But young readers will likely applaud Lulu's reaction. Signor Foresti is surely a bully who deserves what's coming to him. He's an Italian too, hence Roman Catholic...and we already know, from previous Elsie books, what author Martha Finley thinks of "popery"! Lulu then falls a-foul of Horace Dinsmore, who insists that she return to her music lessons with the bully. Lulu refuses. A long conflict begins, with Lulu in disgrace until she will submit. The suspense lies in wondering how this contest will end. In many ways it mirrors the struggle between Elsie and her papa so many years ago, in ELSIE'S HOLIDAYS, but Lulu isn't the meek little saint that Elsie was back then...

    Lulu gets in trouble when she strikes her teacher with a book, then regused to submit, The Leelands vist a dying relative and are left his daughter, and Elsie enjoys the endless pleasures of being a grandmother.

    So far, this book is good. I'm not very far into it, but I like all of the Elsie Dinsmore books so I think this will be good too.

    This series is a bit Calvinistic in its theology, and it's also a bit uber-Christian; i.e., the Christians are really, really good and the non-Christians are really, really bad.
