Read in July, 2011

Reading this as an adult is a real treat. I loved this series as a kid and I read this one as part of my goal to read all "1001 children's books you must read before you grow up."

The writing is clear and only a little dated. I was midly annoyed that the story kept emphasising what Nancy wore and how she looked, but its no different from the sexy haired, stiletto wearing crime fighting vixens on TV today.

Bottom Line: This is a refreshing, clean story about a smart woman who happens to be both attractive and a good sleuth.
