Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If Nancy Drew isn't a born detective, she at least acquired her sleuthing skills at an early age--age eight, to be exact. Such is the premise of this inaugural book in the Nancy Drew Notebooks, which, in the tradition of the Sweet Valley series, turns back the clock to reveal a familiar heroine in her childhood. In this sweet if somewhat insipid tale, Nancy, a spunky third-grader, plans to attend her first sleep-over party. But when--horrors!--the invitations disappear from the hostess's kitchen, the stage is set for Nancy to crack her very first case. Faithfully recording clues in a notebook her father provides, she pieces together the puzzle and announces her solution to her admiring pals (including Bess and George). Told that she sounds like a detective, Nancy is pleased as punch and muses that "she would love to solve mysteries when she grew up." But she'll have a chance to do so even before that: due for simultaneous release is the series' second installment, The Lost Locket . There isn't likely to be a lot of suspense in these mysteries, but most beginning readers won't expect it. Ages 5-8.

More About the Author

Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon are the pseudonyms under which many ghostwriters penned the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series, respectively. Both series were created by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm, in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet, and syndicate writer Mildred Wirt Benson were the two people primarily responsible for bringing the iconic character of Nancy Drew to life in the minds and hearts of millions of readers around the world.

If your daughter likes chapter books and solving puzzles; then this is a great book for her. The characters come to life and have separate personalities. The stories are simple and fun. I finish one and my daughter immediately wants another book. If I get through all the ones I order online then she wants me to re-read them. They have about 8 chapters so I make it last a week with 2 chapters on the last night. I started my daughter out when she was 3, on the old Raggedy Ann and Andy chapter books which are in reprint now. She had a little bit of a hard time going from a book with all pictures to a book where you imagine most of it. The Nancy Drew stories were a little hard to get started on because her complaint was that the pictures (1 or 2 per chapter) are all black and white drawings. I told her that she can look at the cover to see the color picture. Once she heard the first chapter, she didn't care if it had pictures or not. She was hooked. You know I liked these books so well I just bought my daughter's school a set of 10 for their library. They are really good. If you want your child to start early on reading get them started on this series. I hope that one day my daughter will be reading them to me. :o) Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Rebecca Ramirez is having a slumber party. Her parents allow her only to invite eight guests. The next day she loses her party invitations and some more very important items for the party. Nancy, her friend, was willing to help her, along with Bess and George too. Some sneaky things go on before the party and during it.
Usually first books are not as good as the rest of a series, but this one seems to be very good. Actually it is the best one I read so far.

The three of my ten granddaughter's who are old enough to enjoy the "Notebooks" and "Books" about Nancy Drew's adventures, are still, nearly six months after Christmas, loving Nancy Drew. I was an avid fan from 11 to 13, and I can still enjoy the books I saved for almost fifty years! The only drawback, I've noticed is the vocabulary has been "dumbed down" somewhat for today's child whose education in English is simply "poor". I had hoped for the originals and perhaps they are available?--A GREAT tool for an increased vocabulary.

My daughter starts 1st grade in the Fall and she loves these books! If you want to help your little one enjoy reading, what better way than for her to read about girls close to her own age? Even with some of the more difficult words my daughter can easily follow the story line, and even read to me! What a treat to find Nancy Drew for younger girls- definitely worth the investment just to have something entertaining that is not 'screen time'.

Everybody has to start somewhere, and it appears that Nancy Drew got her start as America's favorite spunky girl detective way back in third grade as a smart little eight-year-old!

Nancy and friends are pleased to be invited to their first ever sleepover party, but there seems to be a problem! The invitations and things for the party go missing. Nancy gets a notebook, starts recording all the clues and amazes all her friends by cracking the case of The Slumber Party Secret!

If you've got a little Nancy Drew fan in your circle, don't let her miss out on seeing how her heroine got her start! This is a fun read that will stimulate further interest in reading.

Loved it!
