That's a Nappi cover.

Oh, the huge manatee!

It's been several years since I posted here, but I have a thought to share.

What Did Nancy Drew Do During World War Two?

Considering her life, she may have been in Army Intelligence (G2). Gathering evidence for the war crimes trials as the war wound down seems natural, but it is also possible that she was sent to India to help the British convince the Indians to fight the Japanese because she had saved Maharaja Coya's life. We don't know if Nancy met Gandhi, but I doubt that the "girl gangbuster" would have been impressed by his "passive resistance" plan.

After the war, there were the "ghost rockets" that may provide material for a new story.

The mystery picture's in a mess. The cops admit the case looks black. Just when the crook starts to confess --- rattle-rattle-rattle --- POPCORN SACK!

I figure Nancy, along with Bess and George, were "true" to their country by volunteering at home during WWII in various capacities: George gathered scrap, Bess rolled bandages, Nancy patrolled at night during blackouts, and of course all three worked the USO canteen. No doubt Nancy ran true to form, and whatever she was doing, mysteries continued to cross her path and she solved them.

BYW, nice to hear you're still dropping by here as a Nancy fan Green Hornet!

You bet, Green Hornet. By the way, I passed a book rack in the market today and noted that the current decade is again producing revamped Nancy Drew titles: "Old Clock", "Staircase", and "Bungalow" were the titles I saw. A quick peek at the opening page of "Old Clock" was completely unfamiliar. Interestingly, the cover art portrays Nancy with a roadster and wearing a cloche hat.

Hmmm...

The old one opens with Nancy speaking to her father about the Tophams, but the re-write opens with Nancy driving.

If they changed it even more, I may have to buy a few and have a look.

You might be interested in taking a look at the art for this new reissue of the Nancy Drew Series. If you google Sabrina Gabrielli you'll find her website and examples of the covers there.

I thank you kindly.

Oh, the huge manatee!

I just came back from the site.

That is so cool! The style is fresh and actually fits the era. I approve. :D
