Oooh, and what's the name of the one with the chimney... gosh, it's one of my faves, but I can't think of the name... now there's a good villain, too!

Oh, the huge manatee!

Leaning Chimney?

Ah, that's it, GH!

I haven't read that one in awhile, a year or more. I love it, though.

I think Helen Corning's participation in the "Larkspur Lane" adventure in 1933 is more exciting than Bess Marvin's in the 1960s rewrite.

Yesterday I was looking through a lot of folders (not exactly sure which one now) and someone mentioned a good book - The Lost Files of Nancy Drew. It describes the various versions of Nancy Drew books throughout the years. I called a bookstore and they have it in stock. It's $20 and with coupons I'll get it for $10. It sounds like a great book. Thanks whoever you are for telling us about the book!

I looked at The Lost Files of Nancy Drew book and it's not what I thought it was. It doesn't discuss all of the Nancy Drew books but it highlights some of the popular ones. It has souveniers from each book, for example Josiah Crowley's Will and the note he left in his safe deposit box at the bank. Also notes Nancy makes to herself. It's an interactive book meaning you can lift flaps to read things or pull out a piece of paper (The Will, etc.). It's pretty fun to look at.

Cool! Is the Secret of Shadow Ranch part of that book?

I can't remember, No. 1Fan, but I'll check on it. I'm going back to the store when my next book comes in The Clue In The Jewel Box 1930 facsimile edition. It shipped yesterday from Applewood Books so should be here in the next day or 2.

No. 1Fan: I checked The Lost Files of Nancy Drew and it doesn't cover The Secret At Shadow Ranch. It only cover 13 books from The Secret Of The Old Clock to The Thirteenth Pearl. It's still a cool book. I've started reading The Clue In The Jewel Box. I'm glad to find that Mildred A. Wirt Benson wrote it. When I read other books, it will be interesting to see the differences in books that are written by different authors.

Does anyone know why the covers of "The Secret Of Red Gate Farm" and "The Clue In The Diary" were never redone a third time? Though I actually like the Billie Gillies covers a lot. I actually like his art work, and the covers that Nappi did in 1962 for books 11 through 21 even better than Tandy's.

NewFan - Thanks for the info! I was just asking 'cause I so love "The Secret of Shadow Ranch."

Blackwood - I have a ND book from "The Secret of Shadow Ranch" where on the cover Nancy is rearing on a black stallion, and it's night. A little ways off, you can see the phantom horse rearing. Is that Nappi or Tandy's artwork?

That's a Nappi cover.
