The twins Books

I am going to be showing my age here, but when I was a child the local library had most of a series of books called The Twins Books.  Each featured a set of twins, a boy and a girl, from various countries or historical age who had a series of adventures.  They were written by Lucy Fitch Perkins, and I am sure that they are long out of print.  Here is a bit about them written by a collector.

I loved these too, kitsumehime. I still have my copy of The Cave Twins as it was excellent for reading aloud to classes when doing a topic on prehistory.
I think they also taught me a little about other countries.
I think some of them were not written by Lucy Finch Perkins because  there were other contributors but I'm not sure about that.

Funny that you should mention The Cave Twins.  I think it was my favorite one.  Somehow I don't remember that many details from the others except for a nagging thought that some of them might not be "politically correct" today.
