THE MOTOR BOAT CLUB SERIES
|"The keynote to these books
is manliness. The stories are wonderfully entertaining, and they are at the
same time sound and wholesome. The plots are ingenious, the action swift,
and the moral tone wholly healthful. No boy will willingly lay down an
unfinished book in this series, at the same time he will form a taste for
good literature and the glory of right living."
-- Altemus advertisement
"Bright and sparkling as the waters over which the Motor Boat
Boys sail. Once cast off for a cruise with these hardy young fresh-water
navigators the reader will not ask to be 'put ashore' until the home port
has finally been made. Manliness and pluck are reflected on every page; the
plots are ingenious, the action swift, and the interest always tense. There
is neither a yawn in a paragraph nor a dull moment in a chapter in this
stirring series. No boy or girl will willingly lay down a volume of it until
'the end.' The stories also embody much useful information about the
operation and handling of small power boats."
