4.5 stars. Great book! Ok-ish story line. I think this was a cool spooky book with tons of suspects! I think the story line is a bit strange, and doesn’t totally make sense. Great book though!

I had “Mystery Of The Stone Tiger”, 1963, on hand. I was thrilled to learn Mildred A. Wirt started her employment authoring a long span of The Dana Girls. I don’t believe she composed this novel #25 but I was eager to sample it. I like these sleuths: mannerly, educated, intelligent, and loyal like all Stratemeyer characters but more daring than Nancy. These ladies are bolder too, seen in their rejection of one rude jerk.

A stone tiger from India attracts criminals. We acquire some great folklore

Revisiting a childhood favourite can be revealing. I had forgotten the details of this book. I recall being crazy in love with the girls when I read it. They seemed so sophisticated! Funny rereading it now. They seem pretty normal, but strong young women. I liked the family closeness portrayed then and now. Very cool to read it again. Found it in Smiths Falls!

Nostalgia from my childhood! This is the first book I selected for myself, at a book fair in third grade. It began my love affair with mysteries!

A Nancy Drew-style mystery, where two teen-age sisters solve a case of missing jewels. The main clue is a tiger statue.

Recommended to Ria by: Sister Fiona.
A good story but less of a plot in general than the Nancy Drew series though written by the same author.
A good read though.

I loved this series of books that I read back in junior high. They are from the same syndicate that wrote the Nancy Drew books and the Hardy Boys, but I much preferred the Dana Girls.

I bought these as a teenager and they have been sitting on the shelf through various moves. I wanted something light to read and these have a little bit of mystery. It was enjoyable, had to remind myself when these were written. As they were finding clues and then would have to find a phone to call....kept thinking to myself....where is your cell phone...these were a different era. I highly recommend especially for teenage girls. Not to say us grown up teenagers still can't enjoy! ...more

I never read Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew or Dana Girls growing up but I came across a few Dana Girls mysteries at our thrift shop & thought I'd preview them before passing them along to my girls. The first one was good! I thought the female protagonists were clever & had the grit necessary to solve the crime.

I liked this quote from their uncle, Captain Dana: "I like your spirit! Just because you're traveling on rough seas is no reason for abandoning ship!"
