About this template[edit]

This template organizes juvenile series published during America's baby boomer years, 1946-1964. These books are of the sub-genre of children's fiction known as the juvenile series. This is distinct from series of children's books in general, which are categorized more broadly under Category:Series of children's books. Juvenile series are usually books written for a young adult audience which feature formulaic plots, continuing characters, and positive conclusions.

Some series began publication before the BB years, then continued (or ceased) publication into (or during) the BB years. Some continued to publish even beyond those years. Juvenile series that ceased publication before 1946 or began publication after 1964 are not included here. A question mark in a title's publication dates indicates the date is unknown or new titles are still being published.ItsLassieTime (talk) 03:16, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

What about gender-neutral series like Bobbsey Twins? Powers T 14:49, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

An edit that needs to be done[edit]

Since this template is fully protected from editing, someone at some point will need to make a minor edit to the Boys' books section where it has The Hardy Boys. In the template, the link goes to "Hardy Boys", which is simply a redirect to "The Hardy Boys." I only mention this because when you are on the actual Hardy Boys page, the template should have The Hardy Boys show up in bold, but it doesn't. —Jrcla2 01:54, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Someone else fixed this.—DocWatson42 (talk) 05:51, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
