Victor Appleton Tom Swift and His Electric Runabout
Tom Swift and His Electric Runabout, or, The Speediest Car on the Road, is Volume 5 in the original Tom Swift novel series published by Grosset & Dunlap. Tom Swift enters an upcoming race with his specially designed prototype electric race car. But as he makes the final preparations and adjustments, days before the race, he discovers a plot that would bankrupt not only his family, but also everyone else that relies on the local bank (which is the target of a nefarious bank run scheme). Tom must solve the mystery and stop the criminals behind the plot before he will test himself on a 500 mile race against some of the best cars and skilled drivers in the United States. Victor Appleton was a pseudonym used by the Stratemeyer Syndicate and its successors, most famously associated with the Tom Swift book series. Created by Edward Stratemeyer, the Stratemeyer Syndicate was the first book packager to have its books aimed strictly at children, rather than adults. Wildly successful, the Stratemeyer Syndicate was at one time believed to be behind the overwhelming majority of books read by children in the USA. Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie
