When I posted a reading list, 13 Kids’ Mystery Books, Michelle mentioned, in her comment, that Nancy Drew was her favorite as a kid. She wondered why I hadn’t included this series on my list.
Perhaps I should have added Nancy Drew as a bonus mystery. This was one of my favorites as a teen, too. It’s good to see Nancy is remembered and even a favorite.
My daughter enjoyed Nancy Drew and collected the books for a time. I don’t have any of my original books (have no idea where they went), but I’ve acquired one older copy among my children’s book collection.
Nancy was revived and modernized several years ago, when they made a TV series of her adventures. She and her friends encountered more modern day situations and mysteries. However, she was still the same curious, independent, adventuresome sleuth that fascinated me as a teen.
Do you have Nancy Drew memories? Do your children enjoy these mysteries, or like my granddaughter, prefer the fantasies of today?
