About the Author

Franklin W. Dixon was the pseudonym devised by Edward Stratemeyer for the author of a series of mystery books he was developing which became the Hardy Boys series. The first book, The Tower Treasure, originally published in 1927, was ghostwritten by Leslie MacFarlane who went on to write 19 more, including #2 through #16. In all, there are 58 titles in the original Hardy Boys Mysteries series published between 1927 and 1979 written by 17 different men and women. Many of the books were later revised, adding another four Hardy Boys Mystery Stories to the total.

This book features Frank and Joe Hardy, teenage brothers who solve mysteries.
BYS
The biggest positive here is just that the book keeps focus very well into the main mystery and the chapters move along at a fast pace.

Loved the Hardy Boy books as a young kid and now buy them for my son who like reading them.

It's Christmas time in Bayport and the Boys and their chums are enjoying themselves iceboating out on Barmet Bay. They decide to explore lonely s Cabin Island but are chased away by a surly stranger (Hanliegh). On the way back, they nearly come to ruin in an accident with another iceboat manned by Tad Carson and Ike Nash, a pair of obnoxious bullies.
Heading home from this near disaster, they find a message from Elroy Jefferson (who's car they recovered in The Shore Road Mystery). They head over to Jefferson's posh digs to collect a reward and obtain permission to camp out on Jefferson's Cabin Island retreat over the Christmas school holiday.
The Boys along with Chet and Biff head out to the island on their iceboats and have an unpleasant encounter with Ike and Tad, who are in cahoots with Hanliegh. They chase Hanliegh off the island and settle in for some rousing winter adventures. Soon, they find their supplies stolen and head to the nearest town to get more from elderly storekeeper, Amos Grice, and, incidentally, discover from him that Jefferson had a valuable stamp collection stolen many years ago.
Back at the island, they have more adventures, discover a notebook dropped by Hanliegh indicating that the stolen stamps are hidden in the chimney of the cabin. They make a search and, surprise, find nothing.
Later, during a howling blizzard, they are forced to rescue Hanliegh who has come to grief in an iceboat accident. The storm increases in intensity, finally blowing down the chimney of the old cabin. Searching through the rubble, the Boys discover the stamp collection which miraculously has escaped any damage whatsoever despite being walled into a chimney over a huge fireplace for more than twenty years.

While this was not my favorite Hardy Boys book of the original 58 titles written between 1927-1979 and excluding the 38 revisions, I feel that this book might very well have been the best written. My favorites were The Secret of Wildcat Swamp and Hunting For Hidden Gold, but Cabin Island was a very well written book. The plot was complex and interwoven. It was like several stories, all interconnected were being related simultaneously. I cannot rate it a 5 star as there were several other books deserving of that rating. But Cabin Island rates a strong strong 4 star rating.

Are you looking for a great book? If you are, I would recommend “The Hardy Boys: The Mystery of Cabin Island.” This book will put you in suspense for a long time.

I strongly recommend this book for people who really like mysteries that are very puzzling and have multiple mysteries inside the mystery.

This book features Frank and Joe Hardy, teenage brothers who solve mysteries. At the beginning of the story, they find out that one of their former clients, Mr. Jefferson, is going to let them stay at his cabin on Cabin Island to repay them for their good work. Even on their trip, however, there are mysteries to be solved. Before they even get there they realize Mr.Jefferson’s grandson is missing, and that’s not the only mystery to solve. There is also a ransacking of Mr.Jefferson’s house, missing medals and after they get to the island there is an eerie howling in the the night, and that’s just the beginning.

One reason I like the book is that it has a lot of mysterious mysteries and a lot of suspense. Another reason I like the book is because I enjoy seeing Frank and Joe being so clever and curious, just like I am!

I really recommend this book. It is amazing!!!

"The Mystery of Cabin Island" is the 8th book in the Hardy Boys Mystery Series. After successfully solving "The Shore Road Mystery" (book 6), Old Mr. Jefferson allows Frank and Joe to use the cabin on Cabin Island for a vacation during the winter. The brothers jump at the chance and invite their friends Chet Morton and Biff Hooper along as well. Mr. Jefferson isn't completely altruistic, however. He gives the Hardys a mystery to solve, though one he hopes will be completely devoid of danger and excitement: his grandson is missing as well as his collection of rare medals.

When the brothers travel on their ice boat to Cabin Island they are chased off by a stranger, one who later turns out to be trying to buy the island from Mr Jefferson. Might he be also searching for the medals and where is Mr Jefferson's grandson?

This really is one of the better Hardy Boys stories. The biggest positive here is just that the book keeps focus very well into the main mystery and the chapters move along at a fast pace. While there is a formula at work here, the author does a good job and telling a good story that is interesting with a decent puzzle midway through.

This review is of the 1966 Revised Edition.

Format: Hardcover
This was my 3rd book and my best. I like the plot, and it's hard to tell the outcome of the ending, even though I found out. I got this book from Boise's library, and it was dirty, old, but terrific. No wonder so many people liked it if the book's the way it is now. The ghost part is the least exciting, I'd have to say. But there are so many good parts it's hard to choose which one is the best!!! So if you want a good mystery and action book, this beats all other mystery and action stuff, guaranteed!!!
