5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I loved the Nancy Drew stories as a child, so I'm extremely biased towards them. Anyway, feeling a bit nostalgic, I bought this set for my 8 year old god-daughter, thinking she might be ready for a bit of old-fashioned girly mystery, and she absolutely loves it! Some of the vocabulary is new to her, but Mum is on hand, and because she loves the stories she is keen to...

2.0 out of 5 stars Past their prime.
Bought these for bedtime story books to read to the small one. Unfortunately they are showing their age quite badly. We got half way through the first before giving up in boredom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 3 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The Secret of the Old Clock/The Bungalow Mystery/The Mystery of the 99 Steps: 1 (Best of Nancy Drew Classic Collection) (Hardcover)
I loved the Nancy Drew stories as a child, so I'm extremely biased towards them. Anyway, feeling a bit nostalgic, I bought this set for my 8 year old god-daughter, thinking she might be ready for a bit of old-fashioned girly mystery, and she absolutely loves it! Some of the vocabulary is new to her, but Mum is on hand, and because she loves the stories she is keen to learn the new words. A good buy on many levels! Highly recommended, and still of interest to today's children. For those not in the know, Nancy Drew is an American teenager, maybe back in the 50s or 60s, I don't really know, it's quite timeless, but there are certainly no computers or mobile phones. Wherever she goes for her school holidays she manages to stumble upon a new mystery, and there is just the right amount of suspense and fear to stimulate a young mind without over-doing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the modern books!, 12 Jan. 2010
This review is from: The Secret of the Old Clock/The Bungalow Mystery/The Mystery of the 99 Steps: 1 (Best of Nancy Drew Classic Collection) (Hardcover)
That is what my daughter of 10 years said. She has read both and still enjoys the original books. She tells me that the new, 'modern' ones are dumbed down with a lack of complex storyline - she said it. Quite an interesting observation from a young child. Buy all the original ones! (They are quite often cheaper too!)

This series is my favourite and I want my daughter to be able to enjoy the same series. She really likes the stories because she is into adventures.
