As consistent as this series is, there isn't much I can say about this book that I haven't already said in my previous reviews. An old-school mystery; "PG"-level peril; plenty of timeless appeal. What's not to like?

I still adore Hardy Boys for all their adventures and optimism, and their adventures are at their best in these oldest stories. Oh, and this also happens around an airport, even better.
Just adorable, and the book made me giggle. Oh boy, travel and the adventures from another era.
I hope I'll never get too old for little gems like this.
I was somewhat hesitant that I might not find these books enjoyable now that I've read so much and my tastes have changed but I was pleasantly surprised to find I was wrong. Just goes to show how amazing these books are.
